Birthday celebrations

I completed this card on monday, I think, but just now had time to finally take a picture of it and post it. I have been so busy redecorating the house, sorting through lots and lots of stuff to take to the thrift store... it just never seems to end.

So here is my card, it uses a stamp from Whipper Snapper. What a fun stamp to color!!
I used my new derwent coloursoft pencils blended with gamsol. I actually ended up buying the whole set of 72 pencils because I love them soooo much and still had some birthday money left.


The body was actually stamped twice and popped up with dimensionals but it is hard to see in the picture. The nose and cookies are also popped up with dimensionals. Papers are brand new from My minds eye. Sentiment is from Stampin Up. I added a touch of glitter to the cookies, cherry and heart on the apron. Card base and mat is stampin up's kraft card stock.

I am off to do some more decluttering, and then hopefully I'll find some time later to create something.

Have a great day,
Ellie.
