Back to Nature

For today's card I thought it would be fun to try and design a card around a sketch.  Sorry I don't have the original sketch, but this is what I came up with.

I love the new stamp set Wonderfall in the Hoilday mini catalog, especially the acorn, so I want to make a card using just it.  I was going for a very "wood/nature" feel, which I think I accomplished, but there is something just not right about this card.  Maybe too much Crumb Cake paper or maybe it's the other color choices, especially in the designer series paper.  Too bright?  It's hard to tell in the picture, but I tried to dress it up by adding some gold glitter paper and some shimmer to the wood grain in the background.  I just don't know.  I was having an off day as you can see.  What do you think?  I'd love to hear what you think I could have done differently.
