Feathered Thanks

I am a challenge queen today:  I combined four challenges for today's creation.  Here it is:

And here are the challenges.  First up is the Stampin' Celebration November challenge:

The owl mug made me think of Fine Feathers, so I strayed from my normal fall leaves : )  I've been looking at their challenges for months now but this is the first time I've gotten to participate.

Next up is the fun sketch from Around the World:

As advertised, my card was "simple et rapide" : )  Ooh, I didn't put the sentiment in exactly the same place as the sketch, but otherwise I stuck to it pretty good.

I got the colors from Fab Friday, which lucky for me kinda dovetailed with the Stampin' Celebration inspiration pic:

And finally, the current SUO Challenge is to use a favorite sentiment.  Four You has turned into my go-to sentiment stamp set since Curly Cute is retired, so there you have it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Fine Feathers, Four You
Ink:  Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso
Paper:  Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla, a scrap of some retired Christmas DSP but I don't remember which one but yay I used a scrap!
Accessories:  Early Espresso taffeta (this is retired?!), corner rounder punch
