Acorn angel

Hello lovely people,

We have a new 'Use any image' challenge starting over on The Ribbon Girl blog, so you can enter with any type of project as long as you include an image.
I hope you will come and join us as there are three fab prizes on offer this time :-)

It's well and truly Autumn here in the UK so I was inspired to dig out my cute MFT hedgehogs from last year to make this card.

I started by stamping a few acorns on white card and coloured those in.  Then I stamped, coloured and die cut a whole load more acorns to add with foam pads. Finally, I stamped, coloured and die cut the hedgehog to go on top...he is making an acorn angel!

I ended up shading the background too because it looked too bright white against the ivory and brown of the papers.

I really liked the simplicity of using all white cherry blossoms and blossom flowers to embellish...oh, and that uber cute little acorn charm...sooooo sweet!
