Hello house friends!!!  

Welcome to our October inspiration challenge from The House That Stamps Built.

I am so inspired by wildlife in more ways than just card creation.  I have such a respect for all those creatures and critters that live in the wild - including the nuisence ones like squirrels.  I love to watch them play and chase each other around in the leaves.  This inspiration gave me a perfect opportunity to play with this fabulous stamp from Repeat Impressions - RI#4210-J "Grey Squirrels".  I also used RI#3313-"Oak Leaf" and 3306-I "Falling Leaves".  Everything was colored with Copic Markers.  The sentiment is a partial stamp from RI#9717-C "Happy Hello".

For additional texture and interest, I added a dry embossed piece of cs in dark brown behind the open oval die cut window and the little dots are from my Viva Pearl pen in gold.  

Inspired by this!

Cheri, this card is just stunning! I've never noticed this stamp in the store; I am definitely going to have to look for it. Love how you framed it and how you finished everything off with the leaves and the nuvo dots.
