Acorn Ornaments Christmas

For this card I'm playing along with the Power Poppy Hues to Use from last week. I love these colors, nice and dark and masculine, but I was stumped on how to use them. I kept scrolling through my Power Poppy digital stamps and pulling out my clear stamps but nothing jumped out at me. It wasn't until I was at the movie theater watching Infinity War and a character said a line that got me thinking and boom, I went home and printed off the Acorn Ornaments digital stamp. Inspiration comes from the funniest places sometimes!

I tried to get the 2 different blues on the acorns but they ended up looking pretty similar so I tried to bring in the lighter blue by using some retired Not Quite Navy DSP from SU. The other papers I used are Baked Brown Sugar, also retired, and soon-to-be retired Night of Navy (I'm crying over this, I love that blue!). I used a silver gel pen on the hooks and ribbon to bring a little sparkle to the image.

My layout is from the sketch posted last week at The Paper Players. Since I had die cut the acorns in a circle it was perfect to use. The sentiment is from the clear set Rustic Rejoicing.

Thanks for stopping by!
