FS111 Challenge - Beate

Today is Featured Stamper Challenge day over on Splitcoast. Beate is this week's featured stamper. Her gallery is full of treasures, if you haven't checked it out yet, make sure to do it.
I CASed this card. I do not have that stamp set, but thought the "Partysquirrel" digital image would be a good replacement. I chose a different color scheme because this card is for a little boy who is turning 6. I hope he doesn't mind the pink balloon.
I kept the same sketch.
I used my janome mini to do some stitching along the edge of the card front. Image was printed on whisper white with my HP inkjet and colored with my brand new lot of copics. (I found an awesome deal on them at my local art store...1 box of 72 and 1 box of 36 for a total of about $130 because the containers they come in were damaged-now isn't that an awesome deal!!!!) Designer Paper is turquoise prints designer paper from SU.

The image is from the Digital Stamp Oasis, and the sentiment is from Penny Black's Critter Party clear set.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful Sunday!
