Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 325

Hi there! I know it's been a while, but I'm finally here to share a new card with you for this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge. Today's challenge is all about layers. And we have a fabulous sponsor this week... Newton's Nook Designs! Fun!

The DEEtails:

My best friend and fellow sloth lover celebrated her birthday recently. When Newton's Nook came out with the In Slow Motion stamp set, I knew I had to get it! I stamped the adorable sloth on some cream felt and went over the outlines with a black permanent marker. I colored him in with some Baked Brown Sugar and Crumb Cake. The branch was stamped over a piece of Soft Suede card stock that was first stamped with the woodgrain leaf image from Wonderfall in Soft Suede ink. I embossed the edges of the branch in Early Espresso to give it a little dimension. Then I cut out my little sloth and layered the cardstock branch into her arms. Next I layered some Sweet Sorbet DSP onto a Tip Top Taupe card. Then I added some die cut leaves in Wild Wasabi and a piece of white cardstock matted with more Tip Top Taupe and stamped with the sentiment. The final touch was some pretty Crisp Cantaloupe blooms from Papertrey Ink's Bigger Blooms topped with some pretty Enamel Dew Drop Stickers from Freckled Fawn. I love how they match so perfectly!
