Just needed a quick birthday card for a boy and went looking for inspiration using the August Stamp of the Month. I found that inspiration from Jill Hendricks (who said she was inspired by a blog post from Chris Green). Jill posted a slideshow of an amazing assortment of 30+ birthday cards - all using the same layout but different CTMH papers for each card. Bet you didn't know that CTMH has so many different papers, did you?!?! Check it out HERE.
So... here's my card. It's a scraplift for sure... but I like it, so I wanted to post it.

I was playing around with leftovers from one of my card workshops and came up with this. It is basically the same card as in this post. I used this sassy girl image from the Be Yourself stamp set because she fit the paper I had already cut for this card perfectly! I stamped the girl in second generation cocoa ink and then stamped her again in sorbet. I cut out her dress from the sorbet image and placed it over the cocoa image... a technique called paper piecing.
