Meljen's Designs' ABC Challenge

When I was checking out the up coming Meljen's challenges I saw that this one was called "ABC" . I started thinking "Back to School", and well, that seemed to be super easy. BUT, upon further investigation I discovered it meant to use items on your project that start with the initial of your first name! OK, so my name is Nancy, that means I have to work with the letter "N" and my mind went blank!!! I couldn't think of a thing that started with "N". Embellishments - nope. Colours - nope. [Well, maybe Navy Blue, but that wasn't very exciting!] Oh Nuts! What am I going to do? Then it dawned on me. Melissa has this cute little image of a mouse surrounded in nuts...we are going to stay general on this - I know they are acorns but today they are just plain old NUTS! So here you have it...My "N" Card:
I kept this card fairly simple, letting the image, the layout and colour choices do all the work. No real extras accept for some faux stitching. {I tend to do stitching a lot on my cards 'cuz to me it just helps to tie it all together}. The image was coloured with Copics. The DPs are by 7 Gypsies. I used a Spellbinder die and Creative Memories cutting system to cut out the shapes. The sentiment is computer generated.
I'm interested to see what the other DTs came up with. Let's see, there should be things that start with "R, L, S, C, maybe D". Should be interesting! What letter does your name start with? I'd love to see your project in the MD link up gallery; remember to let us know what you used featuring your initial.
Blessings on your day.
