I'm glad I found you

At Gingersnap Creations this month is all about "Friendship" and this week its about those "Shared Moments" for challenge #GC119. The month is being sponsored by Viva Las Vegas Stamps. They have an amazing assortment of rubber stamps..........Elvis included. LOL. Come join us at Gingersnaps to enter the challenge or just check out the Design Teams wonderful inspirational pieces.

After our yard sale, I was thinking about that special relationship a child has with her doll, when I came across this sweet stamp. To make this  card, I used the little girl with her dollie stamp on plate 876 from Viva Las Vegas Stamps. After stamping, I fussy cut her out, water colored her and then glued her on a Retro Cafe Art ATC image. Distressed layers of different papers and letters are on a sage green paisley paper. Some ribbon, copper Stickles and a Flying Unicorn flower came next. The sentiment says "I'm glad I found you" and was layered on a little tag.

Hope you will be glad find your someone special.
artfully yours, gerri
