Today I was browsing through my list of favorite challenge blogs - doing this usually gets my mojo going - and 4 Crafty Chicks had a cute sketch I wanted to try out. I had all the inspiration I needed!
For my 6x6 card I used paper from CTMH's new Dreamin' Level 2 kit. The Chocolate and Bamboo cardstock is included in the paper pack. I LOVE these colors. They are so rich and great for fall layouts and cards. The acorn tag was cut out with the Arts Philosophy cricut cartridge. I slipped a piece of sunset pattern paper behind the cut out acorn.
