Make it Monday Background Stamping with Sentiments

Saturday, May 13, 2017

Oh how I loved Melissa's beautiful creations this week! I was fortunate to have a very free Sunday afternoon so I was able to create a card for this week. Sadly I missed last week with all the business of life. I recently purchased the Paper Doll Basics and two add on packs......the birthday stamps and some Christmas ones. I love all the inspiration out there for these two cute characters and decided to make a birthday card today using Birthday basics 2 for my background. I decided to emboss my sentiment and then sponged over it with Lovely Lady (Pink) and Orange Zest. Then I coloured my Paper doll and balloons and added another sentiment from the Skinny's set. That is it all done and now I am going to send it off to a friend who is always sending out birthday cards :).
 Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there today............One of the hardest jobs I think but also the most rewarding as well.

Thanks for dropping by today, looking forward to seeing what the next challenge is going to be. Also drooling over the new release and I especially love the new die frames that an be swapped out, Cant wait to see examples of this months tomorrow.
