TCP Challenge

Hey there! Happy Thursday to you! Today's card was made with stamps by The Cat's Pajamas, which, sadly, were heretofore uninked. I've been a big fan of TCP stamps for quite a while and recently hopped off the fence to purchase a few sets. I was so glad I finally had a chance to play with them! Carole is the hostess of this week's TCP Challenge, which is a sketch challenge. Here's my take on it!

I colored with Copics and added some Stickles to the star and party hats. I'm seriously addicted to button and ribbon treatments lately -- I used another one here. Susan has a great tutorial for using buttons HERE at SCS -- check it out when you get the chance!

That's all for today! I need to go and finish up some teacher gifts for Caroline's teachers -- tomorrow is her last day of preschool! I can't believe my baby will be in Kindergarten next year! *sniff* Thanks so much for stopping by today! :)

Have a fantastic day!
Christina

Christina, this card is SO cute! I'm a little biased, because this is one of my favorite TCP images of all time, but this card just screams happiness! Great job!
