Celebrating Friends



Good Saturday morning blog friends! I created this card for a brand new challenge - Where Creativity Meets C9 - and the theme is "celebration".  I am also playing along with The Challenge where it's color week.  Check out their gorgeous color palette...LOVE!  

It's so easy to create your own patterned papers with C9's Wildflower stamp set (along with the splatter stamps from their Brushed Blossom set).  I embellished with
a trio of coordinating flower dies (don't you just love the open, airy design?!).  I was limited in my sentiment choices until I thought about the many friends I've made over the years and decided to celebrate a friend.

Here's what I used...
STAMPS: Wildflower, Brushed Blossom and Wonderful Women stamp sets by Concord and 9th.  
PAPER: Perfectly Plaid Fall by Lawn Fawn.
INK: Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe, Daffodil Delight by SU; Versafine Onyx Black.
DIES: Wonderful Words, Floral and Flutter by C9; Edge Essentials (tiny scallop) by Reverse Confetti; Stitched Fishtail Flags Die-Namics by MFT.   

I'm heading out to work soon with my Virginia Tech scrubs all ready to roll!  Big game tonight with Tennessee at the Bristol raceway with a record-breaking crowd predicted!  Go Hokies!
