Make it Monday and Simon Says Monday Challenges

Simon Says Monday Challenge INKY Background
I am combining these two challenges this week in my card. It was easy to do as the Make IT Monday Challenge, required a make it yourself sticker and the Simon Says Monday is an inky background. 
Here is my card.

I started with a base of Sweet Mango from GKD and then a layer of DP from PTI, called Text Style Autumn Abundance.
Next I used a layer of White CS, again GKD, and sponged three inks to get the INKY background.
I used Distressed Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade.  Sounds good enough to eat.  That panel was die cut with Lil' Inker stitched rectangle die.
The stamp set is Feather Finery along with matching die.  I cut it out of the same design paper and stamped over it with Charcoal Brown ink.  I also cut the die from Easy-Cut Adhesive to make it a sticker.  After stamping the sentiment from the same stamp set, I added the feather sticker and when some Wink of Stella clear and Gold Stickles.  
Thanks for the inspiration for this card, Laurie!  Love all of the new things that you can do, it is never ending. 
I appreciate all of your comments, Seriously!
