Compendium Of Curiosities #9 - CC3C

Hello there and welcome back to the blog. Today I have a postcard for you that I created with the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge in mind. This is challenge 9 over at Linda Ledbetter's blog Studio L3
These challenges come directly from Tim's Book Compendium of Curiosities Volume 3 and this time we are working from page  63, Stamps and Framelits. I am using Tim's Acorn framelit set today.

Linda never disappoints and has a few fantastic prizes. One lucky person will get a wonderful prize pack directly from Tim and Mario themselves, the CC3C crew picks their favorite project for this prize.

They also are sponsored by Inspiration Emporium and one randomly selected winner will receive a 50.00 shopping spree directly from IE, how cool is that??!!

For my project I started with my background and used various colors of Tim's distress paints and then layered those with distress inks. I then used Tim's Burlap stencil and distress inks to add a bit of interest into my background
I created my acorns that I added near my ribbon with real acorn tops and a few pearls

For the words, I used my framelit set "be thankful" and from Tim's Hashtag word set I used the word #blessed

Here is a photo of the dimension I created with the die/stamp

I also added some little doodads that I got from the craft store, they were the perfect color for this project.  Here is my finished postcard

I hope you have enjoyed my postcard and make sure to come by Linda's Blog and check out the wonderful project that the Curiosity Crew put together. 
Have a wonderful day!!
