Last Challenge Creation for 2010

It is so hard to believe that today is the 
Boy this last year really flew by!  But it was a GOOD YEAR so I'm thankful for that and looking forward to 2011!

Today I'd like to share with you a creation I made for the City Crafter #37 Challenge - STAMP IT OUT!  I have gotten so involved with the digi world in past months that my rubber stamps have been a little neglected so I thought I'd play this challenge and 'get inky'.  There is also a challenge out there to use "BABY" as the theme but for the life of me, I can't locate it now ... but anyways, that was the purpose behind my stamp selection.  (ooops, figured it out ... Sentimental Sundays)

Here is the RECIPE for this creation:

Stamp:  Serendipity Stamps (dress), Stampin' Up (sentiment)
Papers:  DCWV Nursery dp, whisper white, 
scraps for paper piecing
Ink:  Versafine Black
Accessories:  Fiskars swivel craft knife, Nestabilities Labels 14, Kaiser pearls, Pop Dots
Technique:  Paper Piecing
