Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Acorns

Acorns are the cutest things!  We have quite a few trees in our area that drop them this time of year and it is always fun to collect them.  When you remove their "hats" they are a perfect cat toy too!

I used PTI's Autumn Acorns and matching die set for my card.  Love how it has various acorn sizes and textured tops you can use.  I mounted them on a woodgrain background to pull in the photo background and added a few leaves and some black accents for a pop of colour.  A touch of twine and half pearls finished the cluster nicely.

Still having a bit of an issue wrapping my mind around the fact we are in November already!!  Time to get my Christmas letter and cards done - eeek!! We even had a surprise snowfall last week to keep us on our toes (very rare for us to get snow out on the West Coast never mind one in early November!!).  Was quite the week as we went from 20C on Sunday to snow on Thursday!  Time to get the winter tires on asap! 

Enjoy the challenge and I look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for popping by :)

So Pretty! I think I would rather put it in a frame instead of the mail:)

I love the woodgrain background (embossed?) is perfect for added texture but remaining CAS. Love it ! Thank you so much for inviting me to be a GD this round!
