Squishy Hugs

I just love this new stamp set (Squishy Hugs) from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I received my set this weekend. I inked it up and created this birthday card.  The sketch I used is the March sketch from the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge.


I used the color challenge (pink, brown and turquoise) from the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge.  I started with a brown (carob) card base.  I added a piece of turquoise card stock backed in white card stock.  I cut 4 pieces of pink plaid patterned paper. I backed each in brown (carob) and white card stock.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens. I cut part of the image out in a circle, backed it in brown (carob) card stock and cut around it using scallop scissors.  I layered a turquoise paper flower onto a white paper flower and added it to the bottom corner of the image.  I added a light pink gem in the center of the flower and 3 in both of the blocks of plaid paper at the top of the card. I stamped the sentiment "happy birthday to you" in the bottom block of  plaid paper. Here is my finished card....
