NUTS about You! Sunday!  I have a fun card to share today!  I am playing along with this week's MFT Color Palette Challenge.  I just love these rich fall colors.  

I started with MFT Card Stock Sampler Pack.  I used whipped cream, smooth white, natural, hot fudge, olive, brick red, and safety orange.  I started with a natural base.  I decided to use MFT  Horizontal Stitched Strips.  I used each of the colors in the color palette for each one of the colors.  I then used Gingham Background stamp in versa mark to stamp all 4 panels.  I inked the edges of each panel with versa mark to add some depth and dimension.  

I then die cut a Pierced Circle Stax using natural card stock.  I stamped the sentiment from Cute Critters.  I used the MSTN Cute Critters die namics.  I die cut and stamped a few of the acorns from the set.  I colored the acorns with Copics.   I stamped the sentiment and lightly ink distressed the edges of the pierced circle stax.  I layered the acorns. 

Next, I used Blueprints 12 and Blueprints 14 to create the little fishtail detail with button at the top corner.  I layered the paper button and tied it with some hemp cord. 
I finished my card with a few brown sequins.  Playing along with Simon Says Monday Challenge.....Falling in love with....
