MFT Nuts About You- A Fun Card for Several Challenges

Hi Friends! 

I recently purchased a few sets from My Favorite Things™ (MFT) and had not had a chance to play around with them until today :-)

I decided to play around with a MFT stencil along with the acorns from the MFT Cute Critters set to create a "Just for Fun" card - this set is so cute and MFT even has a coordinating die set to match :-)!    

Again, if you have not already had a chance to visit the above sites, I encourage you to do so- great samples from the Design Teams as well as their galleries!

Stamp Sets:  Cute Critters (MFT)

Ink: Memento™ Tuxedo Black, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Soft Suede; Stampin’ Write Markers- Cajun Craze, Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, Zig® Clean Color Markers- 060, 022

Paper:  Whisper White, Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Soft Suede

Accessories:  Big Shot™, MFT Dies- Cute Critters, Stitched Horizontal Strips, Blueprints 13, Blueprints 18; MFT Stencil- On The Diagonal, Sponge Daubers, Natural Linen Thread; Crystal Effects™

OK- Version #2...For some reason, I was not thrilled with the first card so I added a bit more Pumpkin Pie on the vertical "tage" element and in doing so, accidentally sponged a bit on the white die area around the acorns  (so I removed them and "fussy-cut" the images ) :-)

Version #2- I was not happy with the 1st one so added a bit more color :-)
My normal style is a more shabby, chic/ vintage and I do struggle with the CAS or cleaner styles- but keep trying!!

So which one do you prefer?  

Version #1 or Version #2?

The shabby chic designer in me likes Version #2 better (and that is a good thing since I cannot remove the sponging now- lol!)....

Thanks again for dropping by! I hope you have a fantastic Friday, hugs to you, my friends!

Gorgeous work. I'd have to say I like number one the best, but the second one is just as gorgeous.
