Autumn Acorns - {SSSC#239/CQC#261}

Good morning!  It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  Karen has another excellent sketch for all of us to create with and we hope you'll find the time to play along.
For my card I used not only this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch but, the colors from this week's Colour Queen Challenge #261.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Autumn Acorns to create a fall thinking of you card.  I started with a card base of chocolate chip cardstock, then added a woodgrain embossed panel of taken with teal.  On top of that I added my main panel which has some leaves stamped directly onto the cream cardstock and others die cut and stamped with two leaves popped up with foam tape.  After stamping the acorns with chocolate chip and taken with teal ink, I decided to add glitter to the bottom portions of the acorns to give them a pop (no I've never seen teal acorns but what the heck).
Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Stampers have created:
