a Riley for you

I made this card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge. The challenge was to use Katharina's sketch. I used my new Baking Riley stamp that I haven't had a chance to ink up yet. The card base is made using Papertrey's Dark Chocolate cardstock. I then layered powder blue Bazzill cardstock that I embossed using an Ellison texture plate. It doesn't show up very well in the photo. The pattern paper is from the DCWV Spring Glitter matstack.
I stamped Riley in Momento Tuxedo Black and colored him with Copic markers. I added white opal liquid pearls to the cupcakes for icing. I also colored the background with Shimmer Chalks. I really love coloring the background with these and use them on almost every card I make.

Thanks for looking and thanks to all of you who take the time to leave me comments. It means so much!

Have a blessed day!
