Use a stamp....any stamp

I had a few cards to make this week, and one used my all time favorite Art Impressions Stamp - I call it the 'old birthday party people', not sure what AI calls it :-)  A good friend is turning 50 next week, and we have been encouraged to flood his mailbox.  Here is my card:

 I created a simple envelope style card.  The embellishments are some very old and neglected pieces from my hoard.  I colored them with alcohol inks to match the card accent colors.  I stamped and colored the images with my trusty Stampin' Up markers.  I love the way the 'guy' peeks up over the envelope.

 Supplies Used:
Wordwin Papers:  heritage black, smooth light green
Stamps:  Art Impressions
Ink:  Black Archival, Stampin' up Markers
Pattern Paper:  BasicGrey Little Black Dress
Embellishments:  Making Memories
Inspiration:  Pinterest

I am entering my card into the fabulous Gloria's Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge.  If you don't know what I'm talking about...  do yourself a favor and get on over there to check it out.  Every 2 weeks they provide a challenge to get us to dig into that hoard of stuff (we all know we have it!).  The talent on both the design team and those who enter is so inspirational.  What are you waiting for?
