Whew!  That's a ton of information but I'm so glad that you made it this far!  I have a project to share with you that features the Optional Add-On, DC229 Cardinal Stamp and Cut.


That guy is so fun with his matching accessories, don't you agree?!  I stamped him with Intense Black and colored him with various alcohol markers.  

The background is a panel from the Midnight Mix Layering Paper pack.  I love the Celebration Words Stencil that I inked up with Wet Cement Shadow ink.


To add a fun pop of color, I backed the cardinal panel with a a sheet from the Pool Mix Layering Paper Pack, definitely one of my favorite paper collections.  The sentiment has been heat embossed in white on a Midnight Mix Layering panel.

That's it for me, Next up is the fabulously talented Janette!
