Retro Sketch68-Nutty Smooches

Happy, Happy Wednesday! It's a beautiful crisp, clear morning here in Cincy.  I have a lot on my to-do list today, but yesterday was a different story. I took some time to create, just to create!!! Loved it.
 I also did a little stampy shopping. I'm excited to have some new stamps on the way to me-Paper Smooches, Elle Avery, and some Reverse Confetti! I think some new paper even jumped into my cart, hahaha! I love that {i heart papers} carries so many brands of ALL kind of products. A little retail therapy! I pulled out the ONLY Paper Smooches set I own { right now}, Falling For You and used this week's Retro Sketch. You can check it out HERE

 I really enjoy these Clean and Simple layouts. The DT over there makes beautiful cards and I even got a Shout Out from the other week. Thanks so much!!

here is my take on the sketch. 

I colored up the Acorn with copics after stamping them on x-press it blending cs. I stamped it again on the green designer paper (on Trend by Crate Paper) and pieced on the leaves. I used some MFT Die-namcis (Blueprints 4 and Pinking edge) for some accent to my paper edges. 
Sentiment was stamped in Orange Fizz ink and I tied on some Orange twine. I can't forget those pretty dots. I used the PTI-Polka Dot Basics impression plate .  
All product is linked below!

I also discovered that I got another shout out from my dear friend, Lisa A and her Wanna Sketch challenge. Thanks, girlie!  A new sketch is up. Check it out!   Woohooo! I'll be playing along for sure. 
One more thing....I made this card for Maddy!

 You can read all about her story HERE. I sure hope this brightens her day.
