Hello 2011 Hero Arts stamps!

Finally used my gorgeous Dictionary Greetings stamp set by Hero Arts... One of my faves from the 2011 catalog for sure! I used a plain Kraft 4x4 card and came up with this fun design:-) Super pleased how it turned out.
This was actually my second attempt. The dictionary stamp didn't leave an even impression on the first card I made, so I had to start over.. Never the less was worth the effort:-)

I masked out the cupcake and stamped the little party hat, and coloured it with Copics... Didn't spend too much time blending since I wanted it to keep it looking rustic.

The streamers were the last to stamp, I coloured them lightly with a green Copic and accented with my white gel pen. I also highlighted the window with some stitching and also added a few detailing on the cupcake and the party hat.
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
