Hey Smarty Pants

Today's 365 Cards challenge was to use lots of white space on your card. If you know me, you know that's not much of a challenge, so I cranked it up a notch and challenged myself to create a one-layer, stamping only card ala Julie Ebersole. I think it turned out pretty cute, although with the crummy weather outside, I couldn't get a decent photo. *sigh*

Tomorrow I'll be celebrating my birthday here on the ol' blog, but I don't want to give away any surprises. You'll just have to stop by and check it out for yourself...

Stamps: School for Changito (Stampendous), Hey Smarty Pants (Memory Box)
Paper: PTI white
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black, Real Red
Accessories: Copic markers

Girl, I LOVE these monkeys!!! I only have one of these stamps, but I LOVE them!! This is too, too cute. My pic isn't as good as yours. My camera doesn't like "white space" cards! Great job with your card!
