MAWTT Add a tag or charm

I'm pleased to say that I'm back after my house move. I'm also pleased to say that I'm eventually settled and it's beginning to feel like home,

This theme for this challenge was set by me and it's 'Add a tag or charm'. Come along and join us at Moving Along with the Times and check out what the rest of Team B have made.

I used a 7x7 Craft UK card blank. I stamped the tree image with a Bee Crafty stamp using a brown Memento ink pad. The image was matted on to dark green Papermill card leaving a very thin border. The First Edition green patterned paper was again matted on to dark green card leaving a thin border as before. The white mat was added to the base mat and an owl charm, from Craft Box, was tied in the top corner with baker's twine. I'd cut out three acorns from the patterned paper and these were added to the bottom corner. Silver stones from John Lewis were added along the base of the tree - just because I thought they looked nice. lol To finish off the card I cut two arrows in the patterned paper and set them to the right and top left of the image.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Brown sugar - Orange, brown and green
Crafting with Friends - Anything Goes
Simply Papercraft - Anything Goes
Penny Black - Close to Nature
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore Encore - Anything Goes

    Your card is lovely, I have a 300year old plus Oak tree at the bottom of next doors garden so get lots of acorns until the squirrels find them.
