Loves Rubber Stamps - Sensational Sunday Inspiration 1/13

Hello and Happy Sunday to you!

I hope you are getting some relaxing time today whether it be spending time with your family, watching football or crafting while the others watch football!  I am in my room working on some fun stuff for you in the upcoming weeks!  I love Sundays, a day to relax and rest. Ahhh..

I am back today with a Sensational Sunday Inspiration for Loves Rubberstamps today.  I really need to stock up on my birthday card stash so I am not up late at night getting something together the night before someone's birthday.  So I decided I would use this cute cow image, C.C. Designs Moo-valous, and start with my card.  It is stamped on cryogen paper in memento ink.  I colored this cutie with copics.  I decided the background of the image needed to have some fun confetti around it, so I dotted the background with different colored copics and finished the edges with spun sugar distress ink.  The image is matted on black cardstock.  I used the Echo Park  This N That collection of papers.  The circle is cut with the Spellbinders Large Oval die and embellished with a flower and some extra pearls.  The scallops were done with a fiskars scallop punch.

Copics used: 
BG11, BG13, BG49, E31, E37E50, E53, E55, E57, R20, R22

The inside of the card uses the left over scraps from the front of the card.  The circle is cut out with the Spellbinders Large Oval die and sentiment, by Stampabilities, is stamped with memento ink.

After I finished my card, I looked at it and realized that I did not use any ribbon.  I think I have used ribbon or trim on every card for some time now.  Maybe I am starting to change... ummm, maybe not. 

Stop over and play along with our challenge to use Die Cuts or Punches!
