Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Card Sketch: Million & One

Good morning!  How was your weekend? We had a great time in that we didn't have any scheduled activities and were able to relax and enjoy, plus I think the heat finally broke and Sunday's weather was downright perfection.  This little break in the craziness did allow me a little extra time in the studio which was a lot of fun.  Today I'm sharing one of the cards I made this weekend for this month's   Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration card sketch challenge.  I have to admit I'm fully embracing the coming of fall and all the fun that it brings and it shows with this card.  For the cardbase I used Soft Suede and then I added a piece of Vey Vanilla cardstock that I stamped the greeting with the Million & One stamp set and Stampin' Write Markers.  Next I added a piece of designer series paper from the Color Me Autumn DSP package that I matted with some Mossy Meadow Cardstock.
Of course since I'm in  fall frame of mind I had to add some leaves and feathers to my card.  I used the Big Shot and Autumn Accents Bigz Die to cut some leaves out of Crushed Curry and Soft Suede cardstock, then embossed them with the Perfect Polka Dot and Houndstooth embossing folders before sponging with Crumb cake ink.  I also added a feather that I stamped with the Four Feathers stamp set in Cajun Craze ink and then cut it out with the coordinating Feather Framelit (you can purchase the stamp set and coordinating framelit and save 15%, so great!).  The final touch was to add a bow I made with Gold Baker's Twine.
I really like how this card turned out, lots of texture and dimension and this sketch was lots of fun to play with.  No matter if you decide to make a pocket card or a faux pocket like mine, lots of possibilities.  Make sure to check out all the other great cards the design team is sharing and come play along so you get in on all the fun.
