Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge 64 - Digi Stamp Characters

Wow! I can't believe we're at the end of August already! This year seem to be really flying by! I survived my first few days with students. Things seem to be going well so far. No high schoolers! Our sponsor this week is Digi Stamp Characters. Heather is offering 3 free digi's from her etsy shop!

Here's the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday:

This image (Cupcake) really reminded me of my daughter. For her birthday party, I had made a bunch of cupcakes and she kept trying to sneak them from the table before the party started. She was successful a couple of times. When I caught her, she had frosting all down her face! All I could do was laugh!

I used my Copics (E37, E00, R29, Y13, BV11, E33, B32, RV11, G21, RV29, and B05) to color the image. The DP is from DCWV Summer Dream Stack and Flower Shower Spring Stack. The light green cardstock is from DCWV The Cardstock Stack and the dark green is from THe Paper Company Botanicals pack. I used my Martha Stewart border press to do the edge of the light green paper. You might not be able to tell, but it presses a flower into the paper. The fowers come from Calypso Tin that I bought at Michael's and the brads came from Hobby Lobby. The ribbon also came from Michael's.
