Autumn Birthday

Happy September!!!  September is really the best month because it's my birthday month!!  And over on the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog we have a new challenge for you.  It's an easy one: Anything Goes!!  We know how much everyone loves that challenge!  Our awesome sponsor for the month is DRS Designs:
Here is my card for your inspiration:
I saw this really cool stained glass stamp in the DRS Designs store and thought it would be really cool to use.  It is just a large square stamp with all the little lines drawn to create the "stained" glass segments, but it doesn't have an image so you can use it with any image in your stash to create a stained glass look.  The image I chose to use with it may have been a little too detailed to really look like stained glass, but I think it still looks really cool.  There are so many options for using this stamp; there are a lot of inspiration cards in the DRS store.  The square image is quite large, so I just added some patterned papers a bit of rafia that I have had lying around forever and 3 yellow rhinestones recycled from some of my kids art projects.

Supplies:
Stamps: DRS Designs "Pumpkin Bouquet" and "Large Stained Glass"; Verve "Borderline" sentiment

Challenges:
Cardz TV #63--anything goes
Alphabet Challenge--L is for leaves (in my paper and in the image)
Just Add Ink #424--just add texture (with the raffia and the rhinestones)
4 Crafty Critter Crazies #418--crazy egg: anything goes
Mod Squad--anything goes
Crafty Gals #173--anything goes
Penny's Challenge #395--anything goes
Use Your Stuff #327--lots of color
heARTful Stamping--anything goes
