Izzie Goes a Little Country

I didn't do it on purpose, but my card ended up with a country kinda feel! Must be that red gingham paper, but quite frankly, I love the result!!!

I used one of my newest Izzies from the April release at Stamping Bella, Izzie with a Cherry on Top. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper then coloured her with copics. I stamped the image a second time so I could pop the cupcake for dimension and added some clear Glaze pen to the cherry.

The layout is SC278 from last week. This card is a little smaller than my normal square cards...it measures 4 1/4" square instead of my usual 5 1/4". I just found the image got a little lost on the larger size. I ran the kraft squares through my D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder before stitching them down to the base layers.

Don't forget to play along with this week's Bellarific Friday challenge...use soft pink, celery green and chocolate, along with any Stamping Bella image then email your submission to Em by Thursday evening to be included in the Friday round-up.

Thanks for stopping by!
