Above & Beyond

Good morning fellow crafters!  How about a fallish card to kick off the weekend?  I had a variety of inspirations for this one but mostly it came from my head.  Found a great new (to me) challenge site too, Stampin' Celebration which hosts monthly challenges.  Yep, I have an entire month to make it, edit, post and enter.  Yippee, my kind of deadline!  For September their challenge is to be inspired by the fallish photo they provided which I linked at the bottom of this post. 
I always think of texture when I use fall colors, not sure why.  So I whipped out the woodgrain embossing folder which is horizontal instead of verticle so doesn't show up the best in my lighting this morning.  (Hence the last picture)

 Here's a shot of the inside, gussied up but still fairly simple.  The Apothecary Accent die cut was leftover from the front of the card so had to put it to work.  Aren't those Comfort Cafe DSP patterns just perfect?  Love them! 
Here's the "other" shot of the texture- if this photo seems odd it is because the card is standing on its side.  And here is the Stampin' Celebration inspiration photo:  
Thanks for stopping by again and have a great weekend!
