Four into one

Finally ... after some 'pooter problems with this post ....

Cute Card Thursday #28 this week has set a challenge theme of food, so I couldn't resist making a card with this uber cute Penny Black stamp "Sweet Slumber" - the image was gifted to me by Cathy. I coloured the image with a mixture of Cosmic Shimmers & Twinkling H2O's (they are actually much more pearlescent than the camera pic shows!) with the mouse coloured in with watercolour pencils.

I also laid out the card in line with Cupcake Craft Challenge sketch, using Sandylion background papers, Prima flowers, Papermania pearl brads and a new Doodlebug "sugar coated" brad (another foody reference? LOL). The sentiment stamp is also Penny Black.
This week's challenge at Stamp Something is to embellish something ... well as usual my card has got flowers, brads and gemstones (though no ribbon for once!) so I guess that's ok.

Lastly, Artygirlz are celebrating their first birthday this week, so their challenge theme is birthdays - I think this card pretty much fits the bill.

This is going to be a birthday card for a crafting friend .. haven't quite decided which one yet :-)
