Combining challenges

I wanted to share a birthday card that I made last night for two challenges: for this week's MIM challenge at Papertrey Ink: Generational Stamping and for Melissa Phillips' Monday With Melis Challenge #1, which was a recipe challenge to include: a heart, Birthday themed, scallops, a background stamp & buttons.

Here's the card I made:


I inked up my new Tremendous Treats Birthday stamps to make this card that I think would be great for a kid! I stamped the MIM technique using PTI Turning a New Leaf stamps. I also used PTI cardstock (stamper's select white, rustic white, aqua mist), button & dies (heart border die, cloud). The patterned paper is all Echo Park, except for the My Mind's Eye piece that I used for the monkey. I covered the cloud die with some Smooch for a little shimmer and shine.

Thanks for looking!

My oh my, you have some wonderful projects here Leigh. I don't know how it is that you find time to scrap, among all the other activities you do. I love the fussy cutting on your butterflies, all the great photos of the kids, and especially the way you photograph your projects. You get some really great light in your home :) Hope you're doing well!
