My Favorite Card (Still is)

****This post is for the PTI Anniversary contest.  We were to post our very favorite card made with PTI products.  When I made this card, the post title was "My Favorite Card".  It still is today.  I have used this layout many times, but always love this one the best.
So today I made a card that is my very favorite of all the cards I have made so far. I just got the Mat Stack #3 stamp and die and have been wanting to make it the focal point of a card. I love it! It lines up so nicely and was the perfect mat for a baby boy card using a little onesie stamp. I stamped the onesie three times and paper pieced it popping up each layer with dimensionals. I finally figured out how to stamp text style script getting it to line up correctly. Turns out the trick was stamping from bottom to top. I had always done it the other way around. For me, that seemed to be the key. I got to use my new PTI dark chocolate twine and also my linen impression plate. I love this card so much, I am going to duplicate it to give to my niece and keep this one for my craftroom card shelf. I love days like this when a card goes together just as you pictured it. I think I am going to start a link in the forum for everyone to share their most favorite card and tell us why it is their favorite. How fun would that be to see?
Details: Card Size 4 1/4 x 4 1/4
Paper: Spring Rain, Dark Chocolate, Rustic White, Bitty Dot Basics
Stamps: All Booked Up, Text Style I, Night, Night Moon from PTI, Onesie from Technique Tuesday Cute as a Button
