Grateful for "Acorny Thank You"

Hello stampers! 

It is so windy, dark and stormy outside. I guess it's a good day for some stamp therapy! I made this card yesterday, while I was "cleaning" my stamp room. Yes, I "played". They looked so inviting, I kept hearing "play with me" and since I just happened to have the Acorn punch on my desk - I started there. 

I have made several cards with this punch and {Acorny Thank You} stamp set. I went for an ALL watercolour look... and I love how it turned out, it's so vintage and rustic looking, I used Early Espresso and Soft Suede with Old Olive. I did lots, and lots of layers until I was happy with the look. 

I mixed some Soft Sky and Gold Wink of Stella to distress the background. I also added some splatters of ink and gold embossing powder. For my finishing touches, I added a gold embossed greeting to the center acorn and some gold twine that I unraveled and stretched across the width of the card. I hope you like my card, let's hope the day brightens up a bit!
