A Sketchy Sentiment

Since I had all my stamps out anyway, I decided to try to complete two more challenges, both of which have sorta stumped me this week: Aud Sentiments #13 (Anything That Has To Do With A Baby) and Midnight Madness Sketch #76. It all finally fell together with this cute stamp, which I haven't been able to use as of yet.
I stamped the whole image onto two different purples, cut out the squares from one, and then used pop-dots (or "sticky fixers") to to create a 3D effect. I especially enjoyed how well this method worked to "button" the ribbon to the card. I used a fun balloon font for the sentiment, which I printed on a lavender cardstock. The lavender didn't show up well next to the other purples, however, so I jazzed it up by spreading lavender glitter glue on it. I had this pretty flower-print paper in my stash, and it worked as both the second layer and the card itself. It's so sparkly in person!
