Thanksgiving Card - Acorn

I guess I need to get a couple of Thanksgiving cards in the mail so have been feverishly working on that.  This card was inspired by one of my favorite Thanksgiving Hymns: For the Beauty of the Earth.  It is just a lovely song with a sweet thankful meaning.  I love the earth I live's beauty is breathtaking everyday.  I have two beautiful trees outside my bedroom window that are gorgeous no matter what the season, but especially lovely in the fall.  Hope you enjoy this season and this card!

I used papers from Kraft, Core'dinations, DCSV, and MME.  Cricut Cartridge: Give a Hoot for the leaves;  Twine in Honeydew, Mandarin, and Cappuccino; VersaMagic ink in Jumbo Java; Jolee's Boutique for the acorn (don't you love the stitching on it) and the bling inside.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
I realize that is quite a list, but everyone is in the Thanksgiving mood!  Thanks from dropping by.  I appreciate all the lovely comments. If you are not a follower...hey come follow my blog, I want to get to know each and everyone of you!  HUGS
