Calendar Girls : SEPTEMBER 2013

      Hello Friends in Blogland
I am a day late in posting this month's challenge,
even though I actually had my card done on time! Yikesss...
This month fabulous hostess is Terry aka my WPS (Wing Pit Sistha) lol...
She gave us the following challenge to execute, see below post,
in her own words:

SEPTEMBER 2013 CHALLENGE Miss September: Terry

"...September is a month full of changes.
From the leaves on the trees changing colors, to me changing how old I am.
My challenge to you is to use the attached sketch to create a birthday card. Your card can be for a male or a female but it needs to include one type of embossing....can be dry embossed cardstock or a wet embossed image, your choice!

Have fun with it and create something wonderful!.."

I LOVEEEEE this challenge for many reasons...                                        
1) I love FALL and all the wonderful earthy colored involved with this great season,
therefore I decided that my card would have a fall feel to it....
2) Give me some layersss...yes! Terry wanted layers...woootttt sistah! ♥
3) I am a great fan of embossing....especially dry embossing...and this challenge gave me the   possibility to use a few of my beloved embossing folder....
4) Really liked the idea to follow a sketch,something that I very seldom do....
5) Gave me the chance to dust off a very cute and neglected lil stamp that screams 'fall'....

Card Deets:
Stamps: Just For Fun (SU 2000) ; sentiment: It's Your Birthday (SU 2005)
Card Stock: Soft Suede, So Saffron , Really Rust , Wild Wasabi (all from SU)
Designer Paper: Classic Woodland (Martha Stewart)
Ink: Copics, So Saffron, Chocolate Chips, Fall Spectrum
Accessories: Oval Punch, Leaf Nestie, Rectang. nesties, silver gel pen,dimentionals,
C/B folders: Pumpkin Harvest, Leafy Branch, Distressed Stripes
Tecnique: Dry Embossing; C/B smooshing, layering, fussy cutting

There you have it folks....I hope you and miss September like my interpretation ...
♥ I know I can't help liking the mix of  fall colors!! ♥
Please DO let me know what YOU think... ;o)

♥♥♥ Thanks for a GREAT theme Terry,
I hope your Birthday was as special as YOU are!!! ♥♥♥

There are some really great things here! I love the textures from the dry embossing. The leaf you created looks amazing! I also like that you listed 'fussy cutting' as a technique! ;)
