Happy Fall!

Hi All!
My favorite time of year is here!  I love the colors, temperatures, smells, and flavors of Autumn. Turning leaves, pretty mums in bloom and bright pumpkins make me happy. The cooler temps are great for a fire in the fire pit.  But my favorite part of Fall is that it is caramel apple and pumpkin pie time!! 
This little angel is a design I did for Denise over at Custom Quilling  You can find this and tons more ideas for inspiration in the archived newsletters there. 

I used the old Sizzix die for the body, shoes and hair and another Sizzix leaf die for the wings.   The onion holder was used to make the dress, mini leaves and pumpkin punches for the halo.  A small scalloped oval punch for her collar, under skirt and a quilled pumpkin and sunflower for her to hold. I used the Peachy Keen stamps for her face.  I put the little angel onto a large popsicle stick to use as a plant poke, but she could be put on a card or used in a scrapbook layout or anything you would want to embellish! 

I think that if I made the project again I would double the die cut body so the light would not show through.  

Happy Fall,
