Sweet Stop Sketch 204 and Whimsy Stamps

Hi folks,

Today, one of dearly beloved's nieces has a birthday - she turns a big 9 years old today. She plays ice hockey (just like her Dad when he was a kid and just like her older brother) so, when I saw this image by Kenny K for Whimsy Stamps, I knew I had to have it so I could make a card for her one day. I have had the stamp for months but this is the first time it was inked up and coloured.

card details
  • finished size: 5x5 inches, white card stock base, CTMH Honey mats/accents
  • patterned papers: CTMH Stardust (I think that's the name, it is retired now and is one of many paper packs in my paper hoard. I'm really trying to use up my 12x12 papers!)
  • stamped image: "Hockey Girl" by Kenny K for Whimsy Stamps, coloured with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E04, E21, E23, E25, E27, C1, C3, C5, Y15, Y17, Y19, B21, B41, B37, YR24)
  • sentiment: Verve "Birthday Surprise"
  • white brads from my stash
  • layout: Sweet Stop Sketch #204

Thanks ever so much for stopping by! I hope your week is going well!
