Joans Gardens card

This card is for the challenge at Joans Gardens. I have not entered her challenges before but Patty (hey!) suggested I try so hear we go! The challenge this week is to use something green, punches, something for nature except for flowers and a background for our image. Tried to use a nestability but the image is too big so I hope inking around the edges qualifies. This is a CC designs stamp with My Minds Eye paper and some punches I believe from an ek success handheld punch. Got the acorns out of my backyard but I have to say that after I posted this I took them off and replaced them with some paper flowers. I like the acorns but was afraid to mail it for fear they would get knocked off being so bulky. This is a thank you card to a former patient and his wife who very nicely gave me some bathwash when I discharged him so wanted to let them know I appreciated it.
