*********************************************************************************
This is my first EVER blog hop!! I'm so excited!  Thank you so much for stopping by! :)  Today I am showcasing the new BLACK BELT stamp set! :)  I decided to make a card for my little cousin who has been in karate classes for the past 3 years now.  She loves it and hopes to go all the way to getting her black belt! 


I got the inspiration for the card from my fellow design team member Katie.  She used the stamping off technique on her Slam Dunk card and I really thought it looked so cool!  So THANKS Katie! :)  This is not a typical card for me, no busy background paper or googly eyes!  lol!  It's rather simple looking, but I do like the way it turned out!  It has sort of a "zen" feel to it.  ;)

It is 5 1/2X5 1/2.  The Karate silhouette and Born to be a Black belt sentiment are both from the Black Belt stamp set.  The sentiment on the inside of the card is from the Sports Sentiments set. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Good luck!
