SPIRAL WHISPER - Emily With Cake

I got new rubber yesterday (*YAY happy mail*) and I have been playing and coloring and having SO much fun! Okay, well actually mostly just stamping and coloring all these gorgeous images, but I will make them into cards at some point.

I made this card for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge (TECC51). She had such a great sketch, perfect for SO many images. I also took this opportunity to use some of the Amy Butler paper I picked up at JoAnn's the other day! I loved the pads, but waited till they were on 40% off and then got them. I am so happy I did, the colors are AWESOME! Have I ever mentioned how much I *heart* Amy Butler fabric/paper? Gorgeous stuff!

This is an image called "Emily With Cake" by Spiral Whisper designed by Kate Smith. This is a new company I just discovered recently while blurfing and I fell in love with this Emily character. The dress is glittered using diamond stickles as you can see more clearly in the close up shot. I also put stickles on the cupcake and clear glossy accents on the balloon she is holding. Ooh, and I stitched around the Emily image in white to hold the whole card together. I thought it needed something subtle and this was the perfect little addition.
