Kokopelli Birthday Card

I love the way this one came out.  Again my background paper was made using the shaving cream method I talked about in my last post HERE.  I made it following one of the sketches at RAQs Challenge on the Cricut message board. 
 Although it is hard to tell the board paper is shimmery copper colored.  The Kokopelli is a stamp I got from My Heart Stamps 4 U, they have some great stamps and if you buy the unmounted sheets it is a pretty good bargain.  I stamped them and heat embossed them with copper embossing powder.  The circle I cut using George and I also cut the happy birthday label with George.  In Design Studio I put two small rectangles inside the larger one so I could feed the copper paper through the holes, I hope this makes sense LOL.  I doodled a bit around the turquoise circle using my white pen.

I am also entering this card into the challenge this week at Clearly I Stamp where the challenge is to use the color TURQUOISE.

Thanks for stopping by, leave me a comment so I know that you have been here.

Love this card, so Southwestern and pretty...can't go wrong on a Southwestern theme using copper and gold! Here in Arizona it is seen everywhere. Your shaving cream paper is awesome. And, when I made was worth the mess, right!!?
