I've been a member of Pink By Designs Stamp Of The Month Club since it's inception almost two years ago. I love Sarah's sentiments and stamp designs, but recently I've realized I have a LOT of the SOTM sets that I've never even touched! Her Black Friday stamp set was one of them. I loved the cute girl covered by a stack of presents. I know I've felt like that girl on many an occasion :). The stamp set is meant to be geared more towards (obviously) Black Friday and holiday shopping, but I thought I'd try to use them for a winter birthday card.
I've been trying to get better at my coloring skills with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers, so instead of paper piecing her I tried to color her. She turned out OK, not perfect, but I'm slowly getting better!
The purse paper is double sided, I couldn't tell you who made it, I just know I got it on clearance at Michaels over a year ago. As you can see I'm trying to get through what I have! I used my EK Sucess Journal Plate & Bracket Punch for my sentiment, it fit perfectly!
I actually really like how this card came out! I still need work improving my coloring with Distress Markers, but I still think it looks cute. I saw that Sarah at Pink Cricut was having a link party today, and thought this would be a perfect card to submit. Thanks for releasing such cute stamp sets Sarah! I love playing around with them :)
By the way, did I ever show you the really cute personalized stamps I had made for the back of my cards? It's been awhile, so my memory is a little foggy. I ordered two of them off eBay, aren't they cute?
I hope everyone is having a great day! If you had to go back to work today after a long holiday off like me, I know it's rough this morning. Just hang in there!
