Toddler Stamp and Card

Good morning!  I haven't posted in quite some time. I think my Muse is visiting someone else.  She needs to come home.

The weather here is dreary. We are under a tropical storm watch, and it's only supposed to get worse as the day goes on. But I don't mind occasional dreary days.  Especially after the brutal heat we have experienced this past summer.  I'm ready to move on to cooler weather.

I have a new stamp to introduce.  It's my Toddler Stamp (#D674-9C)  .  I put together a card to show you how cute it looks colored in.  I'm not happy with the background, and will work on that, but I like the image.

Here is the image:
And here is the card I made:
 I used a purple spray on the background purple cardstock, and it actually looks better in real life, but I'm still not happy with it.  I colored the gemstones with a copic marker to match the toddler's clothes, and they turned out nice. The background layers were cut with nestability dies, and the bottom white layer was embossed with the dotted swiss embossing plate.

I'll try not to be so long with my next post.  Until then, I hope you get to do something crafty!
