HA/PTI Stamp Challenge Day 4

Hello! I've got a couple fun thing to share with you today. First off, this month I get to guess design for Lawn Fawn!!! Check it out here.

Also, today is the 4th day of the HA/PTI Stamp Challenge with Jennifer McGuire. I hope you all are enjoying this challenge as much as I am!

Here's our challenge for today... Working with Hero Arts' Paper Art & Papertrey Ink's Mat Stack #4 (one of my favorite PTI dies!). Here is what I came up with...
Started by stamping a kraft card base with the Paper Art image, in Versamark ink, in the top and bottom corners. Then, using a Stamp-a-ma-jig stamp positioner, I carefully place and stamped the same image onto the corners of a die cut Mat Stack #4 in Worn Lipstick distress ink. Then stamped a sentiment from Signature Greetings in True Black ink.
Attached two strips of True Black twill ribbon down the front of the card. Over that, layered the stamped Mat Stack using dimensional adhesive. Finished it off with a couple of True Black buttons and some black silk ribbon.

Now, be sure to stop by and see what Jennifer has up her sleeve for today. I adored her card from yesterday and it made me think: "There is no way she can out do her self after this one". But, she always does!

Hope you all enjoy your weekends!
