I took my inspiration from the leaves and used some of my Cosmo Cricket, Nutmeg 6x6 paper. Quick confession, I think I love Cosmo paper more than Basic Grey -GASP! Yes, I said it, it's out there now. I have a new love. Sorry BG, you just aren't as fresh and fun as Cosmo anymore!!
Back to the card. I used one of the CAS challenge layouts for this card. I started out by punching all the squares using my 1" punch. Then, as I needed more room here and there to accommodate the Zva rhinestones, I trimmed the squares a tiny bit. The stamps are from Verve's Tall Oaks set. I think this is a perfect quick and easy Thanksgiving card.
Here is a detail shot to see the dimension and glitter on the acorn. Everyone is welcome to play along in the cupcake inspiration challenge. You DON'T need to use cupcakes to play along. Just make a card, layout or whatever and link it to the Mr. Linky on the HSE blog. Every week, Rach highlighs the top 5!! Congrats to this week's Top Picks (I will update link in the morning)!!!
