2RB Sneak Peek - Day 5: Caring Critters's Week of Peeks continues with a sneak peek at its exclusive stamp set "Caring Critters" designed by Jami Bova. I should give this card to my hubby, because today is our 10th anniversary, and I couldn't agree more with the sentiment. Too bad I used such girly paper...

This card was made using a white CS base, on which I adhered a large block of paper from the Paper Studio's Pink Armadillo matstack on the upper portion and a smaller block of Pink Armadillo paper on the bottom portion. I stamped a sentiment from the set onto a strip of Pink Armadillo paper and added an eyelet with a rhinestone glued on it to either end. This strip was adhered over the spot where to two different DS meet. I added three Prima flowers with brown brad centers to the lower left corner with pop dots.

I stamped the bird image onto yet another piece of Pink Armadillo paper with brown StazOn ink and colored it with Watercolor pencils and a Tombow blender pen. I also used Shimmerz opal and angel wings on the bird. I trimmed the image and matted it with... you guessed it - Pink Armadillo paper, and used a pop dot to adhere it to the card.

Keep checking the 2RedBananas blog and the DT member blogs for more peeks and the stamps to be released in March. Then be sure to go to on March 2nd to see all of the new stamp sets. Also check out the inspiration challenge on the 2RedBananas blog. All the details are posted.
