IB89 Acorns for Fall

Hi peeps!  It's sweltering here in PA....but it is still summer, right?!  Thankfully, Laurel has her mind on fall and she has a wonderful Inspired By challenge for us today!  Here's my take on soon as I saw the photo prompt, I knew I wanted to use this Spellbinder's Die of the Month from last year:

And here is her photo inspiration:

I love the rich intense colors...I think I should have done some shading on my card!  Maybe I'll do another, LOL!  Anyway, I started my card by using the sketch from Sketch Saturday:

I diecut the acorn cap from some Brushed Copper cardstock, and the remaining pieces from some Oliver DSP from My Mind's Eye:

The tan background, plaid mat, and banner are also from the same pad, and I embossed the tan background with the Subtle embossing folder after adhering it to a Very Vanilla card base.  The final simple touch was three candy dots in the corner!  I left the inside blank until I decide for what occasion to use it!

Thanks for popping in today--I hope you'll use our photo inspiration to create something fall-ish, or acorny, or whatever!  Share it with us at the IB blog too!!

Our little tomboy!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

It is still Summer, LeAnne - but those acorns are dropping at a record-breaking pace - so glad I don't have them in the yard anymore!
LOve the gorgeous cap on your acorn - that is a wonderful die - and CARD!!

What a pretty acorn and I like the plaid background you gave it! This is lovely. I think our little one is following in Cassidy's footsteps. She's into superheros not princesses and as she puts with a good beat LOL!
