Happy girls...

Good morning!

Well here I am with my third and final entry for the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar contest. This time around I wanted to use a cute human character stamp but I couldn't decide on which one to color up. Then I got the idea to use a bunch of them all together, so I cut a narrow strip of cardstock and stamped and masked the girls from four different Birdie Brown sets with just their head and shoulders showing. The sentiment is from an old retired MFT set called Clearly Sentimental About Audrey Hepburn and I have always loved this one in particular because it is so true. The funky stitched strip die added just enough interest to my white card base and I used a few splatters from the Distressed Patterns set to act as abstract leaves for the paper flower embellishments. Who wouldn't want to be a part of this happy group of friends?  ;)

Alrighty, it's all out of my hands now... fingers crossed!
