Popcorn Birthday Party: Cocoa Style!

Hi there!
I was able to create a card with a brand new Popcorn Cocoa digital stamp image which will be released this Friday 4/15 through Sweet 'n Sassy Designs.  I am LOVING digital images more and more - the price is right and the ability to customize the size and even direction the image is facing is amazing!  I printed Popcorn Cocoa Mouse (isn't she/he cute peeking out behind that big container of buttery popcorn!?) on Neenah Ivory card stock and colored the image with Copics after die cutting the image with a Spellbinder Circle die.

While deciding on the colors I wanted to use for my project, I hopped over to SCS's Color challenge for this week and was thrilled to see that the colors would work well for this image!  This week's colors are from Stampin Up: So Saffron, Pear Pizazz, and Pretty in Pink.  We are also encouraged to use die cuts or punches on our project - perfect since I used several Spellbinder Circle dies for my project - I was going with the popcorn 'circle' theme and put as many circular items as I could on my card!  lol!  After cutting all the images out, I laid them all out on my Spellbinder Grand Calibur embossing mat and ran them ALL through that fabulous machine at once - what a time saver!

I pulled out Bethany's Birthday Wish clear stamp set for the sentiments for my card.  I love how 'generic' the sentiments are that they work well for any birthday card, I think!
