Create a Critter 2 - Creation #4

It has been a while since I have posted anything.  I have been quite busy with work and just keeping up with stuff around the house.  Sometimes life just gets in the way of crafting, unfortunately.  I do have a cute little thank you card for today using the "Create a Critter 2" cartridge.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used dark brown card stock for the base.  The shimmery orange mat is 5 3/8"x4 1/8," and the white mat is 5 1/8"x3 7/8."

The tree and pumpkin were cut from the "Create a Critter 2" cartridge.  The tree is the icon feature found on page 63.  I cut it at 3" and didn't use the face.  The pumpkin is found on page 62 and is the accessory feature.  I cut it at 1 1/2."  I used a Peachy Keen face stamp on the pumpkin.  The stamp is from the October 2013 Stamp of the Month kit.  The pumpkin is adhered with some foam tape.

The little acorn is also from Peachy Keen.  It comes from the October 2012 Stamp of the Month kit.  I stamped it twice, once on the kraft card stock and once on the dark brown.  I then paper pieced it together and adhered it with foam tape. The sentiment is from the Peachy Keen October 2013 Stamp of the Month kit as well.  I stamped it on white card stock and matted it with the shimmery orange.  I added some orange gems to the sentiment's banner.

I made this card for the following challenges:
Perfect Sentiments Challenge: clean and simple thank you
The Friday Mashup: tree or leaves and the color orange
Stuck On U Sketches: anything fall themed
Peachy Keen: sketch
