first concord and 9th creation and giveaway reminder

A few Concord and 9th goodies came home with me this summer. Not really "celebration" related, which is the theme of the first challenge over at Where Creativity Meets C9. But I needed a fall birthday card for my neighbor to go with the Yankee Candle (Autumn Wreath "flavor" for those of you interested) I brought back as her present. So I improvised.

Recognize this stamp set? Did a little stamp surgery on Painted Thank You and heat embossed the "you" with glittery bronze embossing powder. I think that's pretty celebratory! The inside sentiment reads "have an amazing birthday". I stamped two feathers from Grateful, then filled in around them with little flowers and leaves using Distress Inks (Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmelade, Forest Moss and Fired Brick) which I spritzed with water before stamping.

A little Tumbled Glass added to the feathers and then splattered onto the panel finished things off. Oh and a couple Doodlebug enamel dots and a strip of Pebbles PP!

I'm playing at:
Mod Squad - Falling Leaves
Cards in Envy - Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall
Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday September - Red, Orange, Yellow and or Brown
Where Creativity Meets C9 - #1

Last but not least - I've got a giveaway happening in honor of my 1000th post over here if you're interested. There's still time to leave a comment ;)

WOW! A little "plastic" surgery with results that are simply fabulous! Such a pretty fall wreath; the blue feathers and shimmery bronze are the highlights for me!
