CAS for Tuesday Throwndown # 264

Clean and Simple is the theme this week and Sugar Pea Designs is the sponsor of the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge.   I've used a set of dies from Sugar Pea Designs called Stitched Autumn Icons.
I've posted a closeup of each of the die cuts so you can see the stitching and fine details.  There is a separate die for the pumpkin and stem, top and bottom of the acorn and wings and body of the bat.  
I have a problem with CAS cards.  Sometimes, I don't know when to stop.  On the first card, I think it lost it's CAS look when I added the sponging.  I tried really hard with the next 2 cards to keep it clean.
I love the stitching!

This is glitter paper.


If you adjust your screen you might be able to see the zigzag imprint from the die on the acorn cap.
My teamies have worked very hard to inspire you to join this week's Tuesday Throwdown Challenge.  Please check out their projects and visit their blogs for more details. 
And I hope the products we've used from Sugar Pea Designs inspire you to visit their store. where you'll find stamps and dies.

I'm going to drop these acorns into a few other challenges:
 BTW (All stamps used are CTMH)

Thanks for stopping by today.
I love when I get visitors to my blog, any time, day or night.  
It's not like I have to dust or anything!
