Fergus with Cupcake

The adorable stamp I've used on this card was a present from my lovely friend Samantha for my birthday last week...he's called 'Fergus with Cupcake' by Wild Rose Studio. I coloured him with watercolour pencils to match the 'Archaic' papers by BasicGrey...although his bright red cherry doesn't really go! I distressed all of the edges with inks & my distressing tool, and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment is from a little Studio G set, and the sparkly brads are by American Crafts.
