Happy Fall, Y'all! with The Cutting Cafe

Here we are in the first few days of Fall, and it feels like it here in NW Wisconsin.  Our nights are getting chilly, the sun doesn't have much warmth, and the leaves are turning and falling.  Such a pretty time of year!

This week, at The Cutting Café, we had a choice of three sets to design with:
Since I used the fall word shaped card in a post yesterday, I went with the acorn shaped card today.  It's definitely a fall-looking card, don't you think?
I loved how this turned out.  I've been excited ever since I got it made to post it today! The fall looking paper on the base is from Little Yellow Bicycle -- Acorn Hollow 12x12 paper. All other papers are Close To My Heart cardstock.  I used a Spellbinder die for the ribbon slide, and the Joy's Life stamp set, "It's All Fall Puns" found in the Joy's Life store. The fall leaves and acorns are a Tim Holtz die that I painted with various Creative Inspirations paints. The twine and buttercup ribbon are also from Close To My Heart.
It's hard to tell the size of this card without any perspective, but it's big! There's plenty of room to write a great big, long message inside.  My BFF is gonna love this one!
Don't forget to visit The Cutting Cafe's blog every Thursday for a chance to win 3 sets of your choice from The Cutting Café online store.  All you have to do is comment on the post to be eligible to win.  Easy peasy!
Happy Fall Y'all!
