I was inspired by the door detail and the fall colors.

I stamped tree branches and leaves onto cream card stock, then die cut the window out of the stamped piece. I also die cut a window out of gray cardstock and my cream card front. I blended ink onto the stamped window pane pieces. After stamping and embossing the sentiment onto the card front, I fit the gray window frame into the card front, and added the stamped and blended window panes. This inlaid design is very mail friendly!

My Papertrey Ink stamps sets are Through the Trees (sentiment) and Out on a Limb.

***Edited to add: I also entered this into the AAA Cards Autumn Colors Challenge mentioned by one of my commenters.
