harvest moon - hambo stamp card

Happy Wednesday everyone! Is everyone ready for turkey day? I'm not, but I took time out last night to ink up my Harvest Moon lady from Hambo Stamps. They are having a sale until midnight tonight and I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more until I used the ones I had! I made this card for my MIL, who is an avid gardner. Her b-day is coming up and for once, I'm prepared for it! It looks much better IRL, I don't know why the picture is so fuzzy - I really hope Santa brings me a new camera! Anyway, the sentiment reads Happy Birthday to someone who's still got it...

even if it's hanging a little lower than it used to! I know she'll get a kick out of it! She's colored with the aqua painter and ink from the lids of my SU pads.
ETA: I added pattern to the shirt and hat by paper piecing them. I stamped the whole image onto the cardstock, then the parts I wanted the pattern on again onto patterned paper (flowered for the shirt and wicker-ish for the hat). Once the image is stamped on the patterened paper, cut out the piece (shirt & hat here) just inside the lines and glue or pop dot onto the colored cardstock image. The shirt is glued and the hat is popped.

Cute card. I like the way you put designs in the shirt and the hat. How did you do that?
