Addicted to CAS # 23

Hello all - can you believe it's been two weeks since our last challenge?  We had some amazing cards - thank you everyone.  Now it's time for a new challenge which is hosted by the very talented Sylvia.  This is the code word she's chosen for you:

Our sponsor for this challenge is:
paper nest dolls blog
The prize will be a $25 gift voucher!

Here's my card for the challenge:


I've used my Dee's Distinctively Pine Sprigs die to cut out some sprigs from white card.  I then sponged them using Kaleidacolour Autumn Leaves.  The acorns are from Clearly Besotted's Autumn Flowers stamp and die set.  I stamped them in the Kaleidacolour Autumn Leaves and die cut them before arranging on the card using Pinflair Glue Gel.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and punched using a Stampin Up label punch.  This was tied on using Baker's Twine and added some Liquid Pearls.  Final touch was using some Crystal Lacquer to the acorns.

Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to pop over to the Addicted to CAS site to have a look at all the yummy inspiration the DT have made for you.

Looking forward to popping over to your blogs to see what delights you come up with.
