css so grateful

This is my second post today, please scroll down for my There She Goes Stampbook Saturday post :)

I'm delighted to be joining the Clear & Simple Stamps crew today for a little party hop!

First off let me say that I am REALLY struggling with my photographs at the moment :( The weather is dull and grey and I just don't seem to be able to capture the images I would like to. We live opposite some woods so the front of the house is always dark and shaded by the trees and now we are into Scottish autumn/winter weather the back of the house is not much lighter LOL. In a mission to try and get the best possible photographs I bobbed from one window to the next with light tent, without light tent .... I even changed out the patterned paper to try and add a little something! I'm still not happy but these are the best I could get:

I based my party set around the wonderful solid acorn image from Fall Frenzy and some lovely rich autumn cardstock colours :) I stamped the acorn in white ink on to Summer Starfruit card before white embossing. Then I used a simple negative die cut in Early Espresso card to frame the image. The sentiment is hung over the front of the die cut area with foam adhesive on the ends. I got this idea from Jennifer McGuire in one of the latest Online Card Class videos :)

Here's the front of the invitation:

And the inside.

The inside of the invitation uses the Party Elements: Celebration set from Collection 4. Finally I made a little party favour box using Party Favours 3 and a place setting card.

Oh and the napkin was held in place by a simple ribbon with matching tag attached with rustic twine:

Hopping along with me today are:

Have fun!
