Post number 2 for the day - I'm on a roll!  The sketch at Inkspirations this week helped me ease back into my card-making after a bit of an absence.  Here's the sketch:

I decided to continue my love affair with Stampin' Up!'s Autumn Spice DSP, and create a rustic-looking card.  This one has very little stamping (in fact, only the sentiment).  I let the papers do the talking.

Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Card: Naturals Ivory, Cajun Craze
DSP: Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper
Ink: Early Espresso stampin' pad
Other: Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die, Beautiful Wings embosslits die, Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Victoria crochet trim, Old Olive brad, sponge dauber, Stamp-a-ma-jig
