Here is my card for the challenge inspiration. I used  Gift Card Pop-Up DiesThanks A Latte StampsBirch Tree Dies, and Knit Picky Fall 6×6 Paper pack from Lawn Fawn.

To begin, I stamped Thanks A Latte on 80lb Neenah White Paper and colored the images using Copic Markers and then I fussy cut them all.

I pulled out Knit Picky Fall 6×6 paper pack, and diecut the papers using Gift Card Pop-Up Dies and Stitched Tree Borders Dies. To make backgrounds, I trimmed blue and brown papers into A2 size, then I diecut Birch Trees out of 110lb Neenah White, which were also colored with Copic Markers.

I adhered background panels inside the Card Base made of 110 Neena White, then I adhered birch trees and leaves followed by Gift Card Pop-up sleeve and Thanks A Latte images. 

I had bought a gift card with a fall scene on it at a local Starbucks Coffee Shop, and put it in the standing sleeve as shown in the pictures. 

Sentiment from Emphatic set was stamped on Ivory Card Stock and adhered on the bottom of the scene.

The outer front panel of this card was made with simple design.

I used Mod Stripe Stencil and Beautiful Flowers 2 Stamp set from STAMPtember® Release, Big Friend Dies, and Espresso Jewels. The images and diecuts were all colored with copic markers. 

I love how the moods in the front and inside the card are totally different. Can you imagine that these two different scenes are just in the same card? ;) 

So now it's your turn.
