Sweet Peeks and Stampin' Out Alzheimer's

Hi and welcome to this month's Little Paper Shop release previews!! Today we have the SUPER cute new set, Sweet. It is full of super cute images that are sure to give you a tooth ache!! Before I get into the details of my card, here is some VERY IMPORTANT info!!!

"Jen Tapler and Susanna Boyd have been hard at work organizing "Stamping Out Alzheimer's": an amazing event that you won't want to miss!! For a mere $5 donation you will have access to exclusive challenges and fun prizes from numerous different companies. And the best part..... 100% of the proceeds go directly to the Alzheimer's Association!

Little Paper Shop is hosting a sketch challenge on the Stampin' out Alzheimer's forum and would love for you to join us. At the end of the event we will be drawing one name from all the entries to win 4 - 4x6 stamp sets. That's over $60 in value! But the only way to enter is on the Stampin' out Alzheimer's forum! Hope to see you there!"
This is the sketch that we are hosting, but to be able to win, you have to donate and join the forum!! Personally, I can't think of one person I know that hasn't been directly affected by this disease so it is DEFINITELY for a good cause!! I decided to use this sketch for my peek today!! I started by stamping my cupcake on a piece of Gina K. White paper. I then colored it with my Copic markers and cut it out using my Cuttlebug and Circle Nesties. The main image is layered with Riding Hood Red. The DP's are both from SU...the Ballet Blue is from the Muirfield DSP and the other is from the Riding Hood Red pack. I added some ribbon on spiral clips, both from SU, and a few brads. The sentiment was stamped and then punched out using my SU oval punches. As always, I did a bunch of piercing around the edges. The other color on this card, besides Riding Hood Red and Ballet Blue, is Summer Sun.
Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to go around and see what the other LPS girls have been up too!!
