A Fine Vintage Indeed

As I was in the crafting chambers today, organizing my papers by size and colour, an owl came with a message from the people of Dusty Concord Isle. Their vineyards were under assault from an angry pack of hobgoblins, intent on destroying all the crop, thus cutting off the rest of the realm from the sweet wine that came from the isle. As I was partial to the fresh summer wines originating from the region, I quickly donned my armor and grabbed my great bow, ready to assist the good people of Dusty Concord Isle. Of course, a guildy never quests alone, so I asked the Guardian of Glitter to come along, as I knew the Lady Commander of Copics would have nothing to do with the "island of juice", as she calls it.

This card was really built around the sentiment from the My Creative Time "Wow! So Many Candles" set. I used the Birthday Bash cartridge to cut the base for this skinny card. I then used the Simply Charmed cartridge to cut the bottle. It's actually a champagne bottle with lots of stuff coming out of the top, but I cut all that stuff off, since I wanted it to look like a wine bottle. After putting on the label, I thought it looked a little too much like ketchup, so I used the Storybook cartridge to cut "vino" and some foliage so there was no confusion as to what it was {lol}. 

Inside I added some more greenery using the Storybook cartridge and stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper "Birthday Crazy" set.

I made the envelope, as I didn't have any that would fit this skinny card, and stamped a little flower on it.

This vintage will age itself in the following challenges:
Shopping Our Stash Challenge #89: They Say it's Your Birthday
MFP SpeedyTV Simple Salutations Challenge #32: Wine/Grapes
A Gem of a Challenge #67: Dies & Punches
Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #6: Anything Goes
Challenges 4 Everybody #14: Anything Goes

By the time the Guardian of Glitter and I arrived at Dusty Concord Isle, the attacking hobgoblins were so drunk, we were able to fell them rather easily. I didn't even have to use a healing tonic. The vineyard owners were so grateful, they bestowed upon the Guild Hall fifteen cases of their signature summer wine. Nikki and I would have to find somewhere to hide it all from the Lady Commander, as she has an unnatural aversion to all things "juicy". But that is a whole other tale unto itself.
