One Happy Stamper

I'm a wee bit late on one of my girlfriend's birthdays...dare I say, very late! I'm hoping this cute little card will make up for it.

The sketch is inspired by the Mojo Monday 144 Challenge. The colors are inspired by the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #64. When I saw this cupcake, I immediately thought Taken with Teal and Chocolate Chip. I don't have a lot of Taken with Teal prints, but I found a few in the Sweet Pea Paper Pack from the Occasions Mini. Unfortunately, my colors aren't 100% true to the challenge, but they took on a life of their own. It's about inspiration, right?

The stamp set is Tote-ally Tess. I always thought of it as a 'stamper' set (as it has various accessory stamps in it), but as I was making this card, I found that you could use her and her super cute tote for any type of card. It's also perfect for paper piecing...one of my favorite techniques. Her tote, pants and blouse are all paper pieced from the DSP. Super cute! Last, but not least, the saying with the stamp set reads, "The best things in life are made, not bought". How true is that? I stamped this on the inside along with the little scissors stamp, the heart punch stamp and a little marker stamp. It's a must have set.

Thanks for stopping by!
