Melanie's Anniversary Hop

Hello! I have two cards to show you. Back in August Melanie Muenchinger ask me to be her guest designer to showcase her wonderful set "A Year of Leaves" Need I tell you how excited I was! Once again I get to show off her set again.
For this card I used the sentiment, acorns and some leaves from "A Year of Leaves".
I made this because I can't wait for spring!

I know it's not the time of year, but I love the fall colors.
