Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #73

It's been a good week here, though I'm still glad it's the weekend. My roommate and I both washed our cars since the weather has been so nice and they really needed it. I had a few more rounds of physical therapy for my bum arm and actually touched my left shoulder with my left hand for the first time in two months! Still working on the sqeezing thing with my hand... that seems to be the biggest issue right now. Amy and I also purchased tickets to go see the touring Broadway show of "Chitty Chitty Bang Band" in early July! How fun is that?! I love that movie with Dick Van Dyke! Saw the new Transformers movie, went to Bible study, slept in, made some good food (and cards)... It's been a good week. But enough of me rambling, on to the card!

This card was actally made using last Friday's sketch from Taylor. I decided to go really bright, and a bit out of my comfort zone with this one. I hereby admit that I am not sad to see Kiwi Kiss and Pacific Point disappear into oblivion. They are just way to bright and odd for my taste. I hardly ever use them. But I do have few scraps sitting around from my original in colors sample pack and figured I might as well use them up.

I also figured it was about time to ink up this little stamp that I bought about six months ago. She's just been sitting in my drawer, staring at me every time I open it. And every time I open it I think, "Gee, I really should use that stamp someday. It's too cute." Well that day finally came! lol I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with my copics. To make her pants more of a Pacific Point color I mixed a blue and a turquoise together. I popped up the image panel and added some brads at the last minute, though I think I needed to scoot them a little to the left. Too late now!

Thanks for stopping by!
