My Sentiments Exactly

What a day this is!  First, I'm guest designing with the Bugaboo peeps on today's Catch the Bug Challenge.  Second, I'm going up to the My Favorite Things store where Wendy Ramlakhan is giving a couple copic classes.  If you're not familiar with Wendy's work then you must pop over to her blog Sugar Pea Designs.   Could it get any better?  Well, this is Florida and the weather is great and the scenery is gorgeous so I don't it can get much better.

Back to the Catch the Bug challenge.  Today me another designer from the Pile It On challenge will be guesting there and then tomorrow a couple of the Bugaboo team will be guesting with the Pile It On team.  It's kind of like exchange students for crafters. 

The Catch the Bug challenge is "Dry Embossing, Designer Paper and Bling.   This card uses the "Cupcake Word Block" digi image.  Did you notice the "ransom" lettering for the word "frosting", too cute!  The dp is Recollections "Cupcake" which is one of the cutest papers I've ever seen.  I should have brought a ream of it.  The embossing is tiny dots on the aqua card stock behind the image.  I haven't figured out how to get a decent photograph of dry embossing but in real life you can see it.  Purple and Aqua bling was used to match the paper.    The "happy cupcake day" sentiment is clipped on, I still can't decide if I want it there or not, so the clip works out well.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Bugaboo "Cupcake Word Block"; Lockhart Stamp Co "happy cupcake day"
ink - hp printer and Memento "Tuxedo Black" for sentiment
paper - Bazzill "Frosted Teal" cs; the Paper Cut "Sno-Cone" cs; Stampin' Up "Orchid Opulence" and "Pale Plum" cs; Recollections "Cupcake" dp
miscellaneous - copics; Spare Parts clip; baker's twine; cake charm; bling; stitching
