I've made it back home after running for the hills when I saw last week's Retro Sketch LOL! Yes....I'm a wimp...grin :) However, this week's sketch is much more up my alley and I had fun making this card.
In my attempt to yet again break away from my flower and butterfly rut, I pulled out PTI's Autumn Acorn set. Love the various shapes and sizes of the acorns as well as the different tops you can put on them. Needless to say, I chose the polka dotted tops ;) Leaves gave me a bit of grief as I wasn't sure how to place them so after some fussing, what you see is what you get LOL! Tim Holtz's woodgrain embossing folder provided a "tree" for the acorns and I cased the button placement from one of the DT's card samples.
Just love working with these colours and am already getting giddy about using my beloved PTI maple leaf die come Fall :) Mind you, with the weather we've been having the past few months, it could definitely be Fall now -ugh!! Come on summer!!
