Countdown to Confetti: Sammy Squirrel



It's almost new release time at REVERSE CONFETTI, and that means the countdown is on! This release is incredible, and I can't wait for you to see all the new goodies that are coming on Monday, September 8! 



Be sure to visit the Reverse Confetti blog for links to all the designers who are posting today, as well as details on how you can win one of two $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificates giveaways!

Today, the Confetti Crew is giving first looks at the newest set in the Quirky Cuties line -- SAMMY SQUIRREL. As utterly darling as Sammy is, I had something else in mind for my first card. I did a little masking to create a collection of acorns to go with this particular "oh nuts!" sentiment. I finished the card with a simple torn layer of vellum topped with some hemp string and a wooden button. It's hard to tell in the photograph, but the acorn panel is layered onto a light woodgrain panel, which works beautifully with the collection of nuts.





Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Confetti Crew has done with Sammy Squirrel. Links are on the Reverse Confetti blog

Thanks for stopping by! Have a beautiful Friday!
