"Nuts for you" Papertrey Ink August 2013 release

Yesterday I received my Papertrey Ink order that I had placed on release day, the 15th. I was so excited to dive in and play with my goodies! It's getting cooler here in the Pacific Northwest and I am ready for fall. 
I wanted to use this little guy since I saw Nichole Heady post it on her blog a couple weeks ago. 
I looked in my stash and pulled out Simple Stories "Harvest Lane" simple basics kit and paper pieced the squirrel and the acorns. 
I used more paternd paper from that line as a background and tied some of PTI's Orange Zest Twill tape around it . I matted the card with PTI's Dark Chocolate on a Rustic White card base. 
I stamped the sentiment in Stampin' Up!'s Soft Suede ink and used Spellbinders Large scallop oval and Small ovals dies.
For the squirrel's face I used Copic markers R20 for the nose and E42 for the mouth. Almost everything was adhered with Stampin' Dimentionals. 

I love this little guy and will surely be using it more this coming season.
