Merry Monday and MFTWSC187

Happy Saturday my friends.  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  I combined two challenges for my card today - Merry Monday Christmas Challenge and MFTWSC187


As you can see it is not a Christmas card and that is because Merry Monday is having a special birthday tribute to one of their design team members. a sweet lady, LeAnne.
I stamped the cute MFT PI It's A Sign image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copics and Promarkers.  I paper-pierced the chalkboard border with some woodgrain paper from my stash and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.  I also added two balloons, SU Riding Hood Red and Certainly Celery CS, (I hand drew the strings) and a present, both from MFT's Sweet Birthday Wishes set paper pieced with DSP.  I sponged the edges with ink and mounted the red balloon and present with foam dimensionals.  The DSP is from Pepples Front Porch 6x6 pad.  The card base and MFT Simply Scallop Medium die-cut is from MFT Smooth White CS. The mats are SU Basic Black.

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stamping,
