Sweet & Spicy

Hi everyone! As I was coloring this image the brown copic marker I was using on the cup went dry, UGH! I tried smoothing it out with a lighter color but it still looks a little rough! The cup was the last thing I colored on the image and I didn't feel like starting all over again, how bad is that?!? The delicious image is from the Sweet & Spicy digital stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps.  I'm entering this card in the Incy Wincy Designs challenge to use "stitching".

My card base is Riding Hood Red layered with White Cardstock then Western Stripes patterned paper stitched around the edges.  The shadow layer is Kraft Cardstock finished on both sides using the Deckled Edge Scissors.  I wrapped two strips of Brown Satin Ribbon around the card base and taped the ends down on the back side.

The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.  I stitched around the edge then layered it on Riding Hood Red.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on White Cardstock.  To embellish the card I added a bow made with Brown Satin Ribbon and a pearl in each corner of the card base as well as couple by the image.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
