SPCC Challenge #8

Hey Chicas....It's that time again....Here are the colors we had to use from SPCC...

I had a good time doing this card this week because I used my glaze pens...very fun! :-) and I finally used a file technique, which I love to do....
I don't have any SU paper "yet"...so, I used some cardstock from papertrey, which I love!!
I was cleaning all my stickers today and came across this great frame..so, I just added some glaze, a cute acorn and there you goooooo...lol..
I used the stamp from papertrey also..thought it was very cute....Fall is around the corner and it means lots of time inside to have fun with cardstock...:-)...

Hope you like it as much as I did making it....
