You're the frosting on my cupcake!

It's yet another day here on the farm, but today marks my 38th week of pregnancy! That means I have just a mere 14 days until my due date...how exciting is that? I really and truly hope this little man comes early though, because my feet are killing me! They just don't even look like my own! A trial that comes with having a summer baby in Kentucky!

Here is a cute little card I whipped up last night...
I used the cute little Olive the Otter from the Retro Cutie Critters line by Paper Makeup Stamps. This was the first time I inked her up and she's so cute! I did some paper piecing and I popped up her tasty cupcake--with chocolate frosting of course! I used another PMS set called Sprinkles and Cherries for my sentiment. I chose to use the word "Frosting" because I just love cupcake frosting! I stamped that word in white pigment ink and then went over it with my white gel pen.

I decided to just stamp a faint image of Olive on the inside of the card and just leave it blank.

Card Details

This card is my entry for several challenges this week:

* Sketch and Stash Challenge #40--I used the very CAS sketch with a new stamp and some forgotten patterned paper.
* Card Makin' Mommas Challenge #3: Embossing--I embossed the designer paper on the front of the card
The Pink Elephant #76 (TPE76): Brown
CAS75: Dry Embossing--I embossed the rectangle image edge and the designer paper

Olive is definitely going to be seeing more ink now that I've tried her out. She's just so cute!
