Happy Birthday from Rupert

So after taking it exceptionally easy yesterday -- I think I was feeling a little under the weather due to a mild allergic reaction and had a TWO HOUR NAP in the middle of the afternoon, I got myself organized in terms of things I needed to do and this little card is the first of those tasks.

Isn't Rupert (from the Doodlefactory Line by StarvingArtistamps) cute? Those of you familiar with Rupert know that he is actually carrying a flower on the stamp but I switched that out for a nummy cupcake to make this into a birthday card for a friend of ours. Rupert is coloured with Prismacolor Pencils blended with Taltine. Dimensionals have been used to pop him up. The image panels were cut with a mix of small and large circle nestabilities.

This card actually works for a couple of card challenges this week. I am using this sketch from the Secret Craft Saturday Challenge. I decided that with the patterned paper I used for the background that I should keep the rectangular panel plain - I simply embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder that mimics the paper.

And since this is a BIRTHDAY card, it is also great for the Whimsy Stamps Challenge this week to make something for a birthday!
