{A Birthday Card...}

I recently won a challenge on The Greeting Farm blog, and got to pick a new stamp.  Woo!  As if I didn't already own enough... they are an obsession, especially now, after being on the design team last year... I can't get enough! :)

The stamp I chose to add to my collection was the classic "Teacher Anya" and I couldn't wait to get her inked and colored up for this preppy little number:

I stamped her with brown waterproof ink onto watercolor paper and watercolored her with Distress Inks (as always).  I added a few highlights with a white ink gel pen.  I carried the brown color around the card... on the sentiment, the ribbon, and the distressed edges.

The paper is from Papertrey Ink, the sentiment and dies used are from My Favorite Things, the flat-back enamel dots are from Your Next Stamp, and the ribbon is recycled from my stash.  She was a fun one to color and I'm glad I could add her to my stampy family!  :)

I'm linking this card to the following awesome challenges:
