I discovered Octopode Factory recently, very unique digistamps, and I just HAD to find an excuse to get one.  Enter my friend Amy who is having a birthday is this week.  (By the way, Amy if you're reading this please STOP NOW and LEAVE!  You can come back and look after your birthday, lol.)

After much debate with myself, and perusing the challenge blogs for some inspiration, I decided on Marie Antoinette.

Toolbox included Copics, Sakura Glaze pens, Sakura glitter pen, Glimmer Mist in Iridescent Gold, Nestability Curved Rectangles, Nestability Labels Four, Sizzix Birthday Surprise embossing folder, various ink pads, and Versamark watermark stamp pad (I'm not sure where the stamp itself is from).

My inspiration came from the following challenges:
Stamping Vacation, What's New, Cupcake?
Stamping Vacation, Start Here with Any Nestability
Stamping Vacation, You Name the Challenge  (I also challenged myself here to make a gate-fold card, something I'd never done before.)
Copic Creations, Your Favorite Copic Technique  (My favorite "technique" is really just coloring and blending - boring, maybe, but fun!)
Creatalicious, Two Tone/Colours

Thanks for looking!
