Card for Kim Kesti's Crafty Month Challenge and Moxie Fab World

Last month was 'Crafty Month' over at Kim Kesti's blog. She issued a challenge to her readers to create a project using something old (at least a year) and something new.

Since I've only been stamping/creating cards for about a year, I don't have a ton of 'old' in the stamping arena, but I have scrapbooked for a long time, so I have lots of old papers.

That great neutral print is from an old Creative Memories Storybox called Metro.

I've paired it with a brand spankin' new Hero Arts stamp that I just won as blog candy from Simon Says Stamp. The set it comes from is called I Love Books.

The stamp actually looks like this when stamped

I cut off the top, added the 'With Thanks' from CTMH's Card Word Puzzle stamp set, and then used my blending pen to define the clouds/sky a bit more.

I'm also going to link this up over at Moxie Fab World's Stamp It Thank You card challenge.

Hope your week is going well. Thanks for stopping by!
