Taking a selfie.....

Hello everyone: This is my second post with my new team mates at Shopping Our Stash and the theme is "Taking a Selfie" and creating a Polaroid Scene. Now a days everybody is taking "selfies" so we all hope you guys give this challenge a try.  Here is my card.


This is a very old little stamp I bought about 3 years ago at my local craft store, I had a neighbor who love piggies and her birthday was coming up so, one day I saw this stamp and I just had to have it, I made her a birthday card and she literally squeal with joy, LOL!!
I stamped this image onto a piece of Strathmore water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, colored with SU markers and the aqua painter. 
The little flowers and grass are stamped with a couple of little stamps from Art Impressions. 
I have this polaroid die that was just perfect for this card. 
The pattern paper is from a discontinued Lili of the Valley line, I was able to grab the last of the pads, this one is really colorful. I couple of enamel dots frames the sentiment from a retired Flourishes set called "Old Fashioned Florals". 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Whimsical Words" and the little cake from my stash.
We hope you guys give this challenge a try, create a Polaroid scene and link it up to the challenge.
For inspiration go check out the blogs of my team mates and leave some love in your comments.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
