Birthday Play

Guess what I get to do on my birthday! Stamp! Here is a fun card that I came up with as I played with Kim Hughes new patterned paper. Her wonderful new paper line is making it's debut tomorrow at Cornish Heritage Farms. This set is called "Mocha Chica" and it suits the style of Kim's stamps soooo well!
I wanted to play a little game of "Can you spot the stamps?" I used two...... Here are the card deets that will give you a hint:
Stamps:
Pindot (Scrapblocks), The Landing Pad (Kim Hughes) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:
Latte, Pool Adirondack Dye Ink (Ranger)
Paper:
Mocha Chica (Kim Hughes Collection) by Cornish Heritage Farms (to be released tomorrow)
Accessories:
Jewels, brad (Heidi Swapp)
Flowers (Prima)
Grungeboard Heart
Pink Paint (Golden)
Chipboard frame (Crafty Secrets)


I love doing these tall cards, it lets me focus on clustering a group of images. This is something that I have been working on more as it doesn't come as naturally to me. I tend to spread everything out and make it look symmetrical...which isn't alway as effective. Fun to shake things up a little.
Enjoy your day and have some birthday cake with me! I think I may be having some cheesecake!
