Monday Challenges

Hi everyone.  I just finished a card that I am going to enter into a couple of challenges.  The first is Digi Monday over at Paper Playtime.  The last Monday of the month is a digi stamp challenge.  This is the first digi stamp I have ever used but I just loved Gillian over at Prairie Fairy Designs.  You can see all of their  downloads HERE  I actually bought three.  Some really nice designs.  I think she came out cute for the first try.  The second challenge is over at Fantabulous Cricut. Monday Challenge #49 is to make a shaped card.
I bought the Nursery Rhymes Cartridge a few weeks ago when Michael's had their $10.00 sale.  I don't think I am going to get too much use from it but I wanted to see if I could use any of the cuts for this challenge.  Well each page has a monogram feature.  I decided to use my gypsy to weld two together.  I hid the monogram.  Then cut a smaller one for the inside layer.  Here is the card.  What do you think?

Card cut at 5.5 tall and stretched to 4.25 wide
Inside layer approx 1/2 inch smaller
Embossed the inside layer with my cuttlebug
Added some gathered ribbon and a sentiment tag that I have had forever
Gillian was cut at 3.75 (Isn't she too cute)?
Well that's it for now till I find something else to challenge me.  I am hoping to get a Flip camera sometime this month the I will have to learn how to video some of my projects.  ANOTHER FIRST.  Yikes!!!
See you nice.
