Birthday Boy Cutie!

Here's one of those New Cutie Pie Kid images by DRS Designs!

This new line of stamps is absolutely adorable! Have you seen them all?
I have them all stamped & colored, but this is the first one I've had a chance to create into a card. I'll be busy the rest of the week making cards with the other ones.

I colored this Birthday Boy with Prismacolor Pencils and blended them with Gamsol. I inked the edges in yellow and matted it as shown. I added 4 red brads to bring out some color and stamped "Happy Birthday" in the empty space below him.

I heat embossed the star background image with gold embossing powder on the cardstock base. Then I added a panel of red cardstock decorated with a strip of shiny blue ribbon with a gold trim. I adhered the matted image to the cardstock base & added red and gold Stickles to add some glitz to his birthday hat! Viola! This Cutie Pie was done!
