Hip, hip hooray it's your birthday

Good morning folks

Normal service is resumed today with a lovely cute card using LOTV's Cheerleader stamp yet another stamp I haven't yet used - rapped knuckles!
I began by cutting a Tonic layering square from some white hammered card which I then embossed with a Tattered Lace butterflies embossing folder. I then matted the square onto a piece of yellow and then a piece of blue core'dinations. I wrapped a piece of blue spotty ribbon (from the Ribbon
Girl) around the embossed card and then matted it onto a 6 inch square card base which I had covered with a piece of light blue core'dinations.
As I said the stamp is Cheerleader from LOTV which I coloured with the following Spectrum Noir pencils -
  • hair - 096, 099 and 104
  • skin - 003, 005, 004 and 034
  • dress, pom poms and boots - 065, 066, 068, 015 and 017
  • grass - 065, 058 and 047
  • sky - 067

I cut the image out with a Tonic layering square, inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and then matted and layered onto yellow and then blue core'dinations. I attached the topper to the card with foam pads.
I then cut a LaLa Land hearts banner from each of the core'dinations, shadowed them on top of each other and attached it to the top of the card as shown.
I added a bow to the card base as shown and then added the 'waste' hearts from the heart banners.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge - - tie a bow

Thank you for stopping by.
