I'm flat broke but I don't care, I strut right by with my tail in the air -Stray CatsI am so excited to start showing you Anita Be Stampin stuff! I got my sets (Cherry Sweet and Rosie's Sweets) and couldn't wait to play! I love the fun cherries in the hair on this image! So Retro Rockabilly!

I played along with this week's Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS and CASEd THIS card from Jazzytobi. I used the same layout, ribbon type and added the pennant sentiment and zig zag stitching, but I changed up the colors and added a rose to the bow rather than a hat pin.

I used Anna Maria's Background Masking tutorial for the polka dot background...mine is not as great as her's, but I do like the look it gives!

(Sorry for the poor quality on the pic, it was raining and dark when I took it)

I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from Rosie's Sweets for the inside...
