playing in challenges

Sometimes to get the mojo back the best thing to do is check out some challenges.  Simon Says Stamp is one of my go to challenges.  They are fun and usually get me started with thinking out of the box a bit.  This card is for Monday’s challenge.  I am trying to build my own stash back up but it seems slow going.  there are always people in need of cheering up or just a bright Hello how are you. 

The challenge for SSS Monday is

Challenge: Stamp And Punch/Die Cut  

I chose to roll with a Tim Holtz bird die and stamp.  Though the leaves would count also.   I can hardly wait for all those crazy elements to be added to this set in October.  I also used an MFT branch die and the leaves die from Sweet N Sassy.  All kinds of companies got to grace this fun card.
