Motivet - Birthday Wishes

Happy Monday to you! Hope you had a great weekend!!!  We sure did!!!  I'm actually looking forward to Ash Wednesday/Lent this week because my pants are getting tight from all the eating out we've been doing.  I'm considering giving up sweets for lent and hopefully that will jump start me to lose a few lbs!!

But, you don't want to read all about that on a Monday - right?  Here's a card I made for my niece Devon's birthday.  I haven't used this Motivet stamp in a while and thought it would be a nice way to personalize the card for her:

I stamped this little chipmunk on watercolor paper and used my distress inks again to color her up. I stamped an extra sign and skirt too - to pop them up and give some dimension to the card.   I also used the 'out of the box' technique to cut her out of the Nestability.  I used a combination of MFT and Lawn Fawn stamps for the sentiment.

The paper set I used had one sheet of paper with different letters on it - so I was lucky enough to have a "D" - which I added and blinged up a bit!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Hope you have a great week ahead of you!!

Thanks for your visit!
