Day 2 of Inspired Stamp Challenge Week & Cards for Kids Update

Welcome back to an Inspired Stamp Challenge Week I am doing with my friend, Jill. After visiting here, please be sure to head to her blog.

For this day, we will both be using the Hero Arts Floating Garden stamp and will both be inspired by THIS great card by Jill…

And here is my creation. I loved her oval piece with the torn area on the bottom, so I decided to do that same look with a Tim Holtz die cut.
