Shopping Our Stash --Who's Who :The Greatest Gift

Good Morning, Crafty Peeples!

Our challenge for you this week at Shopping our Stash is that your create a project that includes a photograph of a person or a stamped image of a person (humans, people, etc.)

I have chosen to use an image that was given to me as a gift form Christine Armstrong.
Christine is a Digital Artist for Whimsy Stamps and the owner of  Crissy's Art and Heart Blog.

Daddy's Heartbeat

You can find Crissy's Whimsy Images HERE
I don't do a lot of Clean and Simple, but one of those 'happy accidents'  was to dictate the final design.  For the CAS purist, I am sure this card has too many layers and would be a major fail in the 
"ease of production" which is the keystone of any good CAS project.
I am working on a Stationery Project using this image and,  if what is in my head actually translates to paper in design development, I think it will do justice to Crissy's touching and beautiful rendering. 

Thanks for stopping by!
