Do you love Vintage or Distressing?? This was a super fun week for Challenges. I've listed all the ones that I am participating in at the bottom of this post

I used one of the new Hero Arts stamp sets "SEW STYLISH" for my model and her fun distressed tape measure. I stamped the model twice (once onto a natural cardstock and a second time on a light yellow), I then cut the pieces out and only colored (very lightly) the flower in her hair, the pocket and 1/2 of her belt.

Justine, I LOVE the photo of you and your sister! Looks like you had a fabulous birthday and I bet you are loving living stateside, even though it was hard to leave Italy.
Awesome creation and such a fun gift & tag. You are so creative and so, so good at what you do. Your card is the bomb. The design is so cool, so fun and so fresh.
