Toga's Party

Toga's Party - Don't you just love this little party animal? This card makes me feel cheerful and ready to attend a birthday party.

If you are here for the hop and you came from Deanette's awesome blog, then you are on track.

We are showcasing the new release by Sew Many Cards. I was given Toga's birthday to work with. Isn't he the cutest? When you buy this image, you get it in black lines AND in fully colored as well. It also comes with the colored images in pieces, so that you can paper piece it and get all those wonderful layers.

One lucky person who leaves a comment on my post will receive this image for their very own. Doesn't that sound great?

Now for the details of my card. My DP is MME's Kaleidoscope. I love the yummy colors! I have had this pad for about 7 years. Even though I have used it alot, I still have a lot of it left, so it is a good thing that I like it so much.
The challenge this week is buttons, so I have used 3 on my card.
Toga with this delightful ladybug, is colored with Copic's and I uses Stickles on the gift bows, the ladybugs spots and the center of the turtles flowers. My sentiment is Hot Off the Press.
My second card uses this months 1/2 off image. It is Duncan holding Letter. You can get it at Sew Many Cards.
I used a scrap piece of paper and I have no idea who makes it. I used a couple of flower shaped eyelet. My heart border is a MS punch. The heart I cut with my Cricut. I added some baker's twine to the card. Everything was distress with Ranger's Worn Lipstick distress inks.
Duncan is colored with Copic's and I added Stickles to Duncans heart on his shirt and envolope. I also added some Stickles to the die cut heart.
Next on the hop is Audrey. So leave a comment here, then head over to Audrey's blog.
