Cards in Envy “Inspired By A Song” Challenge

It’s Monday and time for another Cards In Envy Challenge.  This challenge is super fun and the theme is “Inspired By A Song.”  I went a little silly on this despite my card not being whimsical.  As we are heading into fall, I wanted to highlight an image featuring fall colors, thus, found “The Acorn Song.”  If that doesn’t sound familiar, you will at once know the chorus that goes, “I’m a nut, I’m a nut, I’m a nut.”  Okay – I’m laughing hysterically now thinking about that fun song and the clicking noise you make at the end of it.  I hope others know what I’m talking about so I’m not laughing alone!

Before we get to the card, just a reminder that the Cards in Envy rules are simple and require only that your card fit into a A2 standard envelope.

My card today features a Tim Holtz’s Autumn Blueprint stamp.  I began with a manilla tag and inked it with distress inks and stenciled over that to create a little mixed media feel.  I colored the ribbon with distress stains and stamped another Tim Holtz stamp for the sentiment.  The background is canvas paper from DCWV.


Well, that’s it for me today.  I’m off to make more cards singing, I’m a nut, I’m a nut, I’m a nut…..
