Another snow day, another card!!!

Well, Its another Snow day! In a way I am glad as I am on massive antibiotics for an ear infection in one ear, and an inverted eardrum with fluid in the other. Everything is really loud and it feels like I am in a fish bowl.
I decided to peruse the multitude of challenges out in the cyber universe and I actually managed to combine quite a few of them .I wanted to make something bright and happy, to kind of take the blah's away. I love hearts and cupcakes. So here you go!!! I used the etsy inspired challenge this week for my colors: HERE
The Paper I used is the Basic Grey blush line. The very cute digi image was a freebie off of a blog I follow, Crafter's digital art center. I printed 3 of these, colored them all and then cut, cut, cut and then pieced it all back together again with dimensionals. There are 3 layers piled up on the image. The image was colored with copics and cut out using Nesties. The paper layout is based on the SC over on SCS, my favorite challenge. I used my new ek punch for the borders. I ran different sections through with my a2 embossers. Used the hearts and Swiss dots. Then finished it up with a red bow thank you bow easy!. Inside card used patterned Dp from Blush and stamps from MFT. Ink was Palette Gauguin and Lautrec!!! Hope you enjoyed the card. It gave me a smile to make and I bet my neighbors will love it.
