Happy Birthday in Layers

Good morning! I have spent the last couple of days thinking about the Sentiment Stamp It Week Challenge on the Paper Crafts Connection blog - and finally this morning had an idea come together! The challenge was to layer two sentiment stamps together - here is what I came up with:

It took a few tries to get it just right, but I'm so happy with how it worked! I used a MFT stamp set, and two colors of MFT inks. To get them to stamp in the soft color I wanted, I had to ink them, then stamp them off on scrap paper, then stamp them on my white cardstock. LOVE the soft dreamy look it gives!

Added a "to you" from an Avery Elle set, die cut my rectangle with Lil' Inker's Stitched Rectangle Dies, added some May Arts Ribbon and some enamel dots, and finished off with some pattern paper from My Mind's Eye.

I am also linking this up with the current Simon Says Challenge - Keep it Clean and Simple.

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!
