Happy Saturday, everyone! Today I would like to share a fun birthday card I made this morning, while using several challenges. The Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose an item from the My Sweet Muffin store (kid's stuff)......I chose this adorable tea set as my inspiration so that I could open up my new 6x6 pad of Bo Bunny "Little Miss" designer paper which I received in the mail yesterday! The "Special Blend" set by Our Daily Bread designs was a perfect match!!
The doily image and sentiment from the "Special Blend" set were stamped onto vanilla cardstock, then I cut the doily out. I wanted to "stencil" the inside of the doily but not the outside lace, so I stamped the doily onto a piece of scratch paper (below), cut out the inside section with my craft knife, laid the mask over my vanilla piece, and sponged with pink ink and a sponge dauber.
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Special Blend';
Cardstock: Stampin Up Old Olive and Very Vanilla;
Designer Paper: Bo Bunny 'Little Miss';
Ink: Stazon Timber Brown, Stampin Up Early Espresso (sponged edges), and Pink Pirouette;

Note: The three little tea cups were cut out from the designer paper....aren't they cute?! :)
