Stamping a Little Girl in a Big Way...

Happy Monday! We have a new challenge for you up on the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog.

Whether it is a background, large image, pattern, or maybe just a big stamp pad – this week is all about the big stamp!

With a new little one around here, we are blessed to have lots and lots of thank you notes to write these days. I decided to take this opportunity to use a new stamp in a big way - as the feature on a card!

See this little cutie? She is from the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer Stamp Set and I just LOVE her...
 I'm thinking a soft watercolor effect will be nice, so I have gathered my distress inks...
 A little blending and spritzing onto my stamp and I get this...
 I like her, but want to try some more options...

Here they all are! I think I like the one on the bottom in the middle...
 She gets cut out and set aside. Now to emboss my sentiment...
Perfection! This sentiment stamp, a Simon exclusive designed by Kelly Purkey, is one of the most versatile stamps I own...
 A few scraps gathered and our sentiment becomes a lovely little prize ribbon embellishment...
 And here are all the elements ready to assemble!
 Like this!
Oh yes, adorable little girl stamp... you are indeed the best thing!
So... now it's your turn! Go get crafty and link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from
