House Mouse Challenge #27 - Chipboard!

I thought this sounded like a relatively fun and easy challenge. No rules other than - CHIPBOARD! In the end, this is what I came up with. (I'm putting in a picture of the outside and the inside. Also, I've still not mastered the photography thing, so these have been scanned.)

I don't have a huge collection of chipboard (yet), but I have some alphabets. I picked an H B that I liked the font, but wasn't as fond of the colors. Once I picked out my papers, I decided to cover the two pieces of chipboard with cardstock to match it all up.

I honestly can't remember where the birthday paper came from. I'm sure it was in a stack of some sort, but that was back before I had any idea that the maker was important. The stamp is the adorable "poppin good bday" - and let me just say, it took FIVE tries before I was remotely satisfied with the popcorn. I was nearly to the point of just not coloring it... it *is* supposed to be white, right? I had some "dimentional" (i.e. puffy) paint that I thought would make the nice glossy pink icing. I used a silver gel pen to get the spoon nice and silver shiny. I colored the rest of the image with copics. The sentiments were printed out onto cardstock.

Enjoy :D
