Another Challenge - Create with Connie and Mary

I just happened to have my Truly Grateful SU! stamp set out along with the Sweater Weather DSP and decided to try the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge for this week. This is the sketch:

And this is my card using this sketch:




I recently purchased the woodgrain EF and thought this added such a great touch to this card. I sponged chocolate chip ink across the edges of the woodgrain to give it some texture. I also tried to add a little color to the acorn by using a gold glitter pen on the cap.



You can't see it too well in the photo but it did add some color to the stamped image which was subtle enough to look pretty good.

Thank you for dropping by my blog today.
