How Sweet she is

This is Jasmine and the stamp is called Party Cupcake. The image is from that great new Australian company called Annabelle Stamps. Party Cupcake is a single unmounted acrylic stamp. I just love her, I think she is gorgeous. The happy birthday sentiment is from the Swirl Tree set. I am really enjoying being on the Design Team for Annabelle Stamps. The stamps are very easy to work and a lots of fun.
How did I do this card you ask. First Jasmine was stamped in Black Brilliance (i find this is my favourite ink to use on acrylic stamps. Make sure your inkpad is regularly topped up with ink, refills are available at all good stamping suppliers).
Next I chose my papers. Bazzill for the base card and the designer papers from the Basic Grey Bittersweet Pad. I then used my prismacolor pencils to colour matching the papers and card.
I then cuttlebugged the pale pink piece of paper with the swiss dots embossing folder and as a final embellishment I chose the burgundy satin swirl (self adhesive, ribbon? I'm not sure what else to call it.) This ribbon was picked up for me by my dear friend Wendy at one of the many craft shows she attends. Wendy saw it and thought I might just need some one day. Well Viola! Here it is. Finishes the card off nicely don't you think?

Until Next Time
Inking of you All
