Party Time?

Here's a second entry, a little more shabby, for this week's Shabby Tea Room Birthday Bash celebration: "Party Time".  Do you think these 2 had a little too much party?


A sweet friend recently sent me several of these older Stampa Rosa House Mouse stamps dated 1997, and this is the first inking of this one for me.  I colored it with colored pencils, making the cupcake like our oldest son David used to request his birthday cakes, with strawberry  or cherry icing.  To shabby it up a bit I added a doily cut in halves, some crinkled hand-dyed seam binding and a ribbon and button.  Since the coloring was pretty pastel, I used pale pink, blue and green to frame it out. 

supplies: white, pink and green cardstock, scrap of dotted blue dp, Stampa Rosa "Birthday Cupcake", Hero Arts CL272 All Occasion Messages, Prismacolor pencils, Donna's yellow seam binding ribbon, paper doily, button, white twine
