Cupid Jacob

I came across Little Loud Stamps from Paper Works in December and ordered the complete Christmas Freckle Collection.  When I saw that they came out with a Love collection, I knew it was a must have.  I was lucky enough to have won a stamp from this line and a store credit from Peggy, so it made an affordable set even more so!  I just had to ink up Cupid Jacob first and here he is......

I followed the sketch for this weeks challenge at Paper Works.  I knew I wanted to use this DP for him, and I wish I knew who made it because I would love to have more of it!  I got it in a 6x6 DP "grab bag" from my LSS awhile back and it doesn't have any information on the back.  Jacob was colored with my copics and the bow is colored in with a metallic gold gel pen.  Stickles on his wing and the hearts finish the image off.  The adhesive pearls in the corners are from Queen and Company, and when I first got them, I didn't see myself using this particular color, but it ended up being a perfect match for this.  While I would have liked a thinner organdy ribbon, this was all I had in this color. 

In addition to the Paper Works sketch challenge, I am entering this card in the following challenges:

ABC Challenge - L is for Layering
Creative Belli Blog - Glitter 
Creative Inspirations - "New Year, New Products"- Stamp, Border Punch 
Charisma Cardz - "Anything New" - Stamp, Border Punch 
Polka Doodles- Love

Raise the Bar - "Debut Day" - use something in your stash that hasn't been opened/used yet and Debut it- Stamp, DP, Adhesive Pearls, Ribbon, Border Punch
One Stop Craft Challenge - Fancy Edges or Corners
Incy Wincy Designs - "Color Me Wonderful" - use your favorite coloring medium (Copics) 
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Lots of layering

This is my second post today, so please scroll down for my first post of the day.

Have a wonderful day!
