LMMS: Happy Birthday Cupcake!

Hello Everyone! Happy New Year!

This image is a rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, she's called Polka Dot Pals Yang and I used a clear face from the Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces. I wanted to color her in an African skin tone since it's for one of my Hubby's relatives that has a January birthday. I chose the color red because it's her favorite color and her birth stone is the Garnet.

It took a while for me to finish my card... besides being the holidays, everyone in our household was sick with flu symptoms and all of us had this bad cough. I had no time for crafting which puts me in a really grouchy mood. I wanted to make sure to add lots of little details to the card and I am happy that it's finished.

Some of the colors I used on this image are:
E31, E33, E74, E27, E23, E04, E07, E79, E00, C1 N2
W9, W7, W5
E97, E27, E99, E77, Sepia Copic Multiliner
N2, N0, 0
R24, R29, R46, R56
B21, B95, B97 and B45
I drew in the stool myself.
(Must find a chair or stool or some stamp of that nature for her to sit on...  I saw some of the inspiration photos from the LMMS store. LMMS store here I come... heehee jk. I need a nap actually.)
The scalloped die is from CC Design,
The oval dies are from My Creative Time,
The Happy Birthday dies are from Elizabeth Craft Design called 947 - Happy Birthday Pop-Up
The Recollections paper pad is called Valentine
The blue paper it's also a recollections paper but I stamped it
with a grid mesh using Distress Inks to give it a worn jean look and to
break up a lot of that beige in the background.
I found the January birthday poem online.

Here is a close-up.

Thank you for stopping by.
I hope you got a little bit of inspiration from this card.
