Here's the Story

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Kelly McKown-Santi our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

 We are celebrating Roald Dahl Day! Yesterday was Roald Dahl Day so for our challenge create a card using any one of his book as inspiration. There are so many!

This girl sitting reading a book, reminded me of the cover on Roald Dahl's Matilda book ... on the illustration Matilda is sitting on a wooden box surrounded by books, but it is similar so I decided to go with this image for my card this week. I also found some book designer paper which I thought might resemble a library.

For the base of my card I have used the Spellbinders Happy Day die set to create a Vertical Stair Step Card. I used the "stairs" to stamp out a birthday greeting, seeing I normally need more birthday cards than anything else.

Here is a look at my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
