CPS challenge

OMGosh, I know everyone has heard about JustRite stampers. CPS (card positioning system) is having a giveaway thanks to JustRite Stampers. You can find all the info through the link in the last sentence.

I just HAVE to have those stamps so I of course had to participate in the challenge. It is a layout challenge and since I haven't used my Billy stamps as much as I would have liked to I pulled them out for this challenge and went from there.

I stamped Billy on PTI white cardstock with palette noir ink. He was colored with copic markers. Billy has a the "hoppy birthday" sentiment with it so I had to use it as well. I have no idea who this card is going to but figured I will use it eventually. The sentiment paper was spritzed with walnut ink.

Billy was matted with some green polka dotted Leavin' Prints PP and attached to the card base with some dimensionals. The sentiment cardstock was matted with some PTI spring moss cardstock stamped with Verve's flower center using my son's red ink pad.

I used some baubles from Michael's and colored with my red copic marker for the corners that were punched with SU! ticket punch.

The PP is a piece I got from Joann's many moons ago. I can't even remember the brand.

All of this was pieced together on SU! kraft cardstock. The card is an unusual size just to fit the layout and images I wanted to use. I believe the final card size is 6 and 3/4" by 5 1/2". Oh, btw, Billy wasn't intentionally supposed to have a black eye. I was trying to fix a mishap in my stamp but it bleed and when I saw it I thought, he looks like he has a black eye. I have two boys so I figured it was quite possible and went with it.

Also, I pointer, you may already know. If you have those baubles from Michael's and want to color them, color the bottom of it and then glue it down with crystal effects. I have been trying to color the top of them and making a mess and rubbing off the colors and then a light bulb went off tonight and I was so excited. I am sure that is how everyone else has been doing that but I just figured it out and in case someone else was like me I shared.

Hope you like and have a great Thursday!!!
