It's A Cupcake Kind of Day

This week at the Dies R Us challenge blog
our theme is RED.

I have to admit it threw me off course a bit as
in my mind all I could think of was red hearts.....
talk about having a one track mind!



But, while out shopping last week
I came across this cute little stamp that was marked
way down.
Now I don't need any stamps, but it was too much of a
bargain to pass up, let alone being so darn cute!

I colored him in with a few Copics,
added some red stitckles to the sprinkles, and
outlined his whiskers and eyes with a stardust clear pen
to create more sparkle.

to cut out the image and the glitter paper under him.

 The background was cut from a scrap piece of red card stock

Here is a close up of the stitching.



If you follow my blog you will know I have a bit of an addiction
to the 'stitched' dies lately!

across the top (yes, I know it is not centered, I wanted it that way)
...so all in all I did manage to get my hearts in!

 A pretty simple card...
the inside I computer printed a sentiment
'It's a cupcake kind of day'!

Now pop on over the the Dies R Us challenge blog and see
what my 'teamies' have come up with for their 'RED' cards!

Gosh, what a cute stamp! I wouldn't be able to pass it up, either. I don't remember seeing either the heart banner or the stitched background. LOVE both! What a great eye you have!
