haha! I like this. I know it's kind of late, but I wish the acorns were in the shape of a heart. Either way - super fun idea.

This is cute. You might try a couple things... the bottom stands out a lot - maybe make it the tan color like the top... try keeping the white border around the photo (but maybe a little thinner) or maybe removing the white all together. See what looks best. Also, instead of having the acorns coming down in semi straight lines... disperse them out mix, mix up the colors, tilt them in differnet directions so it looks more like it's raining acorns. This may or may not be the right thing, but just some ideas, b/c i think this is a really cute concept. The acorns are adorable. I also might try another font other than Hoedown for the 'may you have...' I like the hoedown but maybe just for "Thanksgiving" and not the entire saying. If you do use it, I would make it all the same case. Hope that's not too much! Great idea.

Fun idea! I think scattering the acorns might look better. JMO!
