Market Street Color Cue

Am I the last one on the block to hear about Market Street Stamps?   I think I may need some in my life, stat!  Fortunately their color cue is open for all stamps, so I played along with the current challenge:
and used this week's CAS sketch challenge again, too:
I thought Eat Cake Graphics Callie would love to help decorate for a party (especially since she's wearing her party hat).  I used a Silhouette store download for the banner, cut it out of Echo Park Playground and My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party papers, and attached them with the Tim Holtz tiny attacher.  I also added a wee bit of foam tape under a couple banners on each string.  I stamped Callie out of Sahara Sand, which I also used for the base.  I always forget about that color. Do you, too?  Anyway, because the stamp had a pattern on the hat already, I stamped it on the back of the patterned paper and cut it out.  Ink the edges with a marker, and voila-a hat with no stamped pattern on it!  The letters are from a Cosmo Cricket sheet and they are totally not centered on the sticker, so yes I had to trim one side of every sticker because it was annoying me so much and because I'm that type of person.

I'm also the type of person that likes to win.  I'm also the person not above asking you yet again to vote for me for Gallery Idol here (it should take you straight to my card, but if it doesn't, I'm number 7-the spaceship).  If you already took to the time to do so, YOU ROCK!  Thanks so much!

I rock, you rock... and this card rocks big time! Callie is so cute, and I've known more than a few dogs that would absolutely love to help with birthday banner hanging! :P

I guess I rock, you rock, too ;) Super awesome card. I love that you stamped Callie on the same cardstock as the base...I never think to do that. You're making me want a Silhouette...shamey, shamey. Good luck with the Gallery Idol.

This is one awesome card, Meg! I love how the dog is holding the banner in his mouth. Too cute! I have been on the fence about purchasing a silhouette. I am loving what you have been doing with yours. :)
