Have A Slammin' Birthday!

Hi everyone!  Happy Tuesday!!

Here is a card I created using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch from a few weeks ago, SSSC125!  I hadn't yet inked up this ADORABLE new stamp from Taylored Expressions, Moka Justin, and I thought this sketch would be perfect with him!

In case you were wondering, the answer is yes!  Moka Justin was inspired by none other than the "Biebs" himself...Justin Bieber!  I LOVE his stylin' ensemble!

I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers.  I then fussy cut him out (I am really into cutting out my images lately) and popped him up with Foam Tape onto a panel of patterned paper.  All of the papers are Lime Twist Out Of The Blue from My Minds Eye.

The grey circle panel was run through my Big Shot with the Stars Impression Plate for a bit of texture (love that!) and I created a little sentiment flag for the sentiment, "Have a slammin' Birthday" and anchored it with some stars cut with the Seeing Stars Die.  A few silver pearls on the circle panel, and one by the stars, complete the embellies. 

I did add a border with the Small Scallop Border Die in between the patterns, but you can't see it all that well.  I also stitched all of the panels on my sewing machine.

Here are the Taylored Dies I used on my card today:
