Daisy had sent me stamped images in my last order of a few of their new stamps. I had to try out the Delia Chick image right away.

I made this card last week Thursday for the Way to Use it challenge Better Sharpen Up.  We were supposed to use Pencil crayons to color in our image.

I had a bad migraine all of Wednesday afternoon (last week). Thursday morning the pills finally started working, but I was still very nauseous. I had to stamp though, because I didn’t want to break my challenge streak.

I colored the image in with my Pure Colored Pencils and blended them with Gamsol and Tsukineko Fantastix.

I cut down the image to a 2″ x 2 3/8″ rectangle, doodled the border with my 03black Micron pen  and added AMuse Card candy. I also added Stickles Stardust on the icing and Gelly Roll Stardust on the ribbon, on the darker parts of the cake and the chick.

I then layered it on a 1/4″ bigger piece of Black cardstock. I cut a 2 1/2″ x 2 7/8″ piece of Purely Pomegranate and sponged the edges to make it darker and was about to tape my main image on it, when I smudged the nice white center image. I didn’t feel good enough to repeat all the coloring and embellishing, so I sponged the edges. Not as pretty as before, but it hid my mess.

The card base here is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Garden Green cardstock. I used my retired Stampin’ Up! Stripes template and a sponge to add the stripes,  stamped All in a Row dots between them and highlighted the stripes by adding a doodled border with my 03black Micron pen.

The horizontal layer measures 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ and is a piece of Holiday Harmony Designer Paper. I stamped the dotted border from In the Spotlight around the side and top edge and adhered a 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ piece of black cardstock on the bottom.

May Ribbon was added around the Designer paper and AMuse Card candy on the black strip on the bottom.

The saying is from the Stampin’ Up! set It’s all Good. It was stamped in Black Palette ink on Shimmery White cardstock, punched out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch, layered first on a 1 3/8″ black circle, then on a sponged scallop Purely Pomegranate circle.

Last I added a small black photo corner on the top right and topped it with three little AMuse Card Candy jewels.
