Cheers! to My Favorite Things Stamps

I so love a glass of bubbly!  Isn't she just adorable?  I have fallen in love with stamps from My Favorite Things!  Right now, they are definitely one of MY favorite things.  I love their sketches too as they are fresh and fun.  I also used a SU heart stamp as well to create a background paper but we'll get to that in a moment.  I stamped my main image on Neenah Classic Crest with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored her with my Copics (E30, E21, R02, E23, E25, E27, BG02, BG05, BG07, Y23 and C0).  I cut her out and added a little shading around her with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink around the edges and added my Stampendous ultra fine multi glitter to her dress with a Quickie glue pen, a little touch of Stickles to her ears and Glossy Accents on her glass of bubbly.  I set her aside and moved on to the Lasting Impressions paper piece.  I took a heart stamp and colored on it with my Copics (BG02, BG05, BG07, B05, G02 and G05).  I spritzed the stamp with some Copic blender solution and stamped my heart on the paper.  I took my Colorless Blender "0" and using the tip-to-tip method I added some stripes of color to the stamped image.  I stamped several of these hearts and repeated the same process on each one.  I punched out my tab with the same Lasting Impressions paper, folded it over, stamped Cheers! and attached it to the bigger piece with the hearts.  I cut my strip of Bo Bunny paper that had the hearts on it that inspired my stamped hearts, cut my Bo Bunny dots paper to fit and then layered the whole card on Bazzill.  I added some cute little blue-green rhinestones from Queen & Co. to finish the card off with that extra little bit of pizzazz.  I'm so please with how it all came together.  I planned to enter the MFTWSC from last week but alas, I missed the deadline!  That's okay, there are a couple of others I'm going to enter my adorable young lady in, Pile It On! PIO #35 - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun and Charisma Cardz Challenges #35 - Anything Goes at  Why not join me?  You just might win!  Here's a close-up of her sparkly dress.  It reminds me of the 50's dresses that were so sparkly!
I love sparkles, don't you?
