The Paper Players Challenge-PP63

The Paper Players challenge for this week is a color combination by Nance. These colors compliment each other so well and I enjoyed coming up with my card for this week. Here are the colors we used:

And this is my submission for this week:

Me.....using lots of DSP? Not likely is it, but I did!

I was asked this question by one of my customers a few weeks ago "Do you ever start out creating a card with a thought and totally come up with something different?"........yes, yes, yes. I started out this card thinking I was going to create 2 acorns with my ornament punch and totally went in a different direction. My acorns turned into ornaments:
