Acorny Thank You

For today’s card, I was inspired by the color challenge over at TGIF Challenges and the layout challenge over at Fab Friday this week.

I used the Island Indigo as the base of my card today and layered it first with some Smoky Slate and then Whisper White, leaving a little Smoky Slate exposed to the left.  I then used some Ruched Flirty Flamingo to tie a bow over the Smoky Slate.

Next I created my acorns.  I kinda liked the ideas of using these non-conventional colors for acorns for this card.  I used the Island Indigo, Smoky Slate, and Flirty Flamingo to create the tops and bottoms of the acorns from the Acorny Thank You Stamp Set.

Underneath the acorns I layered a pattern from the A Little Foxy DSP, a hint of a Delicate Doily, a few loops of Silver Thread, and then finally the sentiment stamped in Flirty Flamingo from the Acorny Thank You which was fussy cut and adhered.
