Your Next Stamp Fun Friday CAS Style

Hello and Happy Friday!  Time for another Your Next Stamp Fun Friday and this month's theme is "Anything Goes".  My goal this month is to create with stamps and dies that I haven't had a chance to use yet so today I have a card for you that I created using my brand spanking new Tree Trio die set and Full of Colour stamp set.  How cute are those acorns?

I printed my sentiment onto some kraft cardstock and created a little scene with the tree dies and acorn stamps.  A strip of ribbon, a bit of twine and voila!,  a nice quick and easy, clean and simple card for this busy time of year.

Be sure to stop on by the Your Next Stamp blog for some more wonderful creations from the design team AND if you haven't had a chance yet, scroll down one post to see this month's release blog hop.  You could win some great prizes!
