A.R.T. #14 - Baby Girl Challenge

Happy Thursday dear friends!

It's time for another fun challenge at the

As you can see by my title, today's theme is:


I have had this Serendipity Stamp for several years and I just think it's adorable and fun for paper piecing.  What do you think??

For the inside of my card I was just going to stamp one set of booties with this sweet Impression Obsession stamp and position the sentiment over top ... but then when it didn't stamp correctly (dang!) I decided to stamp all over the inside cover in hopes of making my 'boo boo' less obvious!  LOL!  Have you ever done that????  Grrrrr!

Anyways ... I think it looks pretty cute and hopefully the recipient will too!

A few additional challenges:

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Paper Piecing
