I really love how this card turned out--all inspired by that ribbon. My base card is gold metallic card stock with layers of Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive. The top partial layer is Dusty Durango which I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Leafy Branch folder. Then I added a strip on which I stamped the border from PTI's First Fruits in Versamark and heat embossed with gold Ranger Fine Detail embossing powder. I trimmed around the design, then "piped" the strip with Bravo Burgundy. See that button on the bow? It's carved coconut shell and was a light tan when I bought it. I thought it "needed" to be burgundy, so I colored it with a Copic marker. Worked like a charm! The sentiment was heat embossed with gold, as was the cap of the acorn, which was then popped up on a full acorn image, also from First Fruits. The full acorn was also popped up and finally, I added some gold flat backed pearls for balance.
