It's a {bang bang} TCP Tuesday!

Susan Liles is our TCP Tuesday hipster hostess with the mostess this week, and she's challenging us to use our TCP stamps to make a swanky birthday card, complete with cupcakes if it pleases you! Check out Susan's blog for all the swanky deets!

I decided to go a little western, complete with a paisley embossed background and yellow-bellied fringe. My sentiment is embossed in gold and placed just so to (hopefully) look like a western belt. Poochie, who is shootin' up cupcakes left and right, is stamped on kraft cardstock, colored with colored pencils, and then cut out and popped on top of a die cut label in white. Just to dirty him up a bit, I edged the label in PTI's Vintage Touch inking system.

Before making the above final-final TCP card for the week, I'd stamped the card below for our nephew's birthday, and then I got the bright idea for Poochie to shoot up cupcakes and thought it matched Susan's TCP theme for the week a bit better.
