Your Next Stamp Challenge - Books are Cool

Hello friends!

I was so excited to get my Your Next Stamp order the other day!  Especially since I got another Phoebe to play with. : )  This set is Phoebe's Birthday and Phoebe has a pile of books to sit on, as well as more birthday-ish accessories like a present and a birthday hat.  I love it for the books, though, because my daughter is a librarian, and I have plans to use the books and sentiments on some bookmarks soon!

I tried to follow the sketch from Your Next Stamp for my layout, but I took a few liberties and made mine a square card rather than a rectangle and switched out the image rectangle with a circle.  I kinda sorta followed the colors, too. : )  I colored Phoebe with copics and added some highlights with a white gel pen and I used the YNS Stitched Square dies to cut out the square.

Wouldn't this be a fun card to tuck into a lunch box or to send a teacher?  And can you believe that school has already started for some states?  Here in Wisconsin we don't start til after Labor Day, but even that is coming up soon!  And then comes fall and all the lovely fall-ish stamps.  I need to dig through and find some of my favorites.  It won't be long now!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I saw your adorable card on the YNS linkup, and I had to pop over and say how much I love it! Your coloring is beautiful, and I love the papers you used! Great job!
