The acorn fell from the tree!

 This is the newest Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge.  I knew the moment I saw it what I wanted to create using it. (Remember you can play along with the challenge to win stamps, you have until November 2nd)
 The first thing I saw was "simplicity". Just a tall tree and a little car.  I figured I could create what was in my mind with some woodgrain patterned paper and Kim's adorable little acorn stamp.  The patterned paper is by Bella Blvd., I just love it. 

 I could have used a few different color combinations on the acorn but I wanted to stay real close to the colors of that super cute van.  The colors leaves are coated with Aleene's Paper Glaze for an epoxy look.  I created a little banner so I could add a cute sentiment.
And, I need to share some fun news...

I just got the new issue of Just Cards in the mail and my card is on the cover!!! The little The Cat's Pajamas stamp of the chicken in the bowl. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
