Nutty about You!!!

Hey there my crafty friends!

(Edit to note: this card was featured on Paper Issues Blog! Thank you I am so honored...well, I am now DOUBLY honored as this card was chosen for the Sparks challenge winner of the week.)

I have a post that is just about having a little crafty fun! I stole some time today to just have fun and be crafty and {gasp} ink up some stamps I had not used yet. I hate to admit it, but there is more in this category than I care to share, but if there were only more hours in the day. This was a purchase made with birthday money back in February! See what I am sayin'! 

So here we go!
I just think this acorn from Paper Smooches Falling for you is just too cute and when I saw the Cool Shades SPARKS challenge this week I couldn't resist using it as my inspiration.   As always, I used pieces and parts from my beloved scrap pile. 

I started with Lunch Bag Kraft card base leftover from another make and also used this to create my tag. I love this stuff! :-)  I paper pieced that cute little darling of an acorn and placed it on some fun patterned paper that coordinates with the card front.

A banner was created to decorate the top of this card and embellished with pearls. A length of brown satin ribbon was wrapped around the center of the card and tied off in a double bow decorated with a pretty resin flower. 

As mentioned, I gained some creative inspiration from the Cool Shades Sparks challenge at Paper Smooches. 
Here is the color story.
