life is sweet...

Happy 'Sundae' to you! It's time for another Paper Sundaes challenge. This week challenges you to use metal on your project and our sponsor is Stamp and Create. You can find the image I used called Cherry Emma there!

I used four different stamps on this lovely card. I required a bit of masking but I think it turned out great! I used Cherry Emma and her stump from CC Designs, the cupcake stack from Our Craft Lounge and the sentiment from Craft Affair. And, since there are really three different images to color, I used quite a bit of my copics for this one. I'll spare you the list and give you a picture instead!

I decided to use the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and then after coloring her in, I paper-pieced Emma's jeans with a piece of Paper Pizazz denim paper. I love the way they look so real. The cupcakes are 'iced' with Stickles and I love cucakes with a cherry on top! (plus they match the cherries on her shirt)! In keeping with the challenge, I used a metal photo corner, a metal cherry brad and metal brads as flower centers!
