and you can't find a card design to match it's cuteness? I bought a back view of a little girl with a purse trailing behind wearing mom's high heels the sentiment that goes with it says no one could fill your shoes. I have her colored in pinks and purples my friends fav colors I can't find the paper i'm looking for to go with it and the design isn't cute enough. any idea's?

This is when I start trolling the gallery and a few blogs for idea.

I have that stamp. I think it's a Mo Manning. Her work is so adorable.

I agree, check out the gallery here and at Splitcoast. Take a peek through some of your favorite blogs, especially sketch ones. Sometimes, I like checking out challenge blogs to see if one of the challenges sets off my design mojo.

Also, K and Co made some paper with girlie designs like purses. There's also a DCWV stack called something like "All about Girls", and I think Making Memories has some purse/shoe paper, too.

Here's the DCWV stack, but I couldn't find the other two because I can't remember what they're called.

I also think that there might be a gallery on Mo's blog.

why don't you make your own background? there are a lot of inking, painting, distressing techniques that you could use in the exact colors you need.

They're so easy to use, just size them to how big you want (it's easy to do in Word or even Picture Manager) and print. It's easier than "real" stamping
