This is another new release from Victoria Case "Hearts and Hugs Collections #2" exclusively for SCACD. Everytime I ink one of the images I think this is my favorite, but they are all so cute I don't know which is my favorite. I can say this, these stamps are etched wonderfully, they are so easy to stamp and get all the detail the first time. Now, on to Susy (isn't she sweet). This card can be used for various occasions. I decided I would give it to one of my granddaughters with a Build a Bear gift card in the inside pocket.

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday. I am also entering this card in the following challenges.

Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Touch of Sparkle

One Stop Craft Challenge - Something cuddly

Susy is stamped, heat embossed and colored with Copics. The DP was part of my stash. The white background was run through my Cuttlebug and then I put ribbon on top of it. The flowers have a little shimmerez on them just to give them a little shine and finished off with spacers and pearl brads. The charm says "made for an angel". Crystal Effects was used on Susy's eyes so they would shine. Of course, stickles was added to her ponytail holders, top, the hearts on her pants and her shoes. It is so hard to get a good pic to show the stickles without it being overpowering.

The charm says "made for an angel" on one side and the other side is an angel.

I did the same thing on the inside with the white accents and added ribbon and rhinestones. There is a double pocket on bottom.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look. If you have time, please leave me a comment.
