Sung from the Heart Hop

In today's sample I used this perky little toaster from "Sung from the Heart".
DP is Basic Grey Bittersweet and CS is Pure Luxury White, Innocent Pink, Moonlit Fog and Lipstick Red. The slot is cut with the word window punch (which I also used for the lever), and I attached a Cuttlebug Die cut heart for the end to match the toaster image. Toaster is colored with Copics. A corner rounder punch gives some nice sleek curves and adds interest to this retro fun card! I shared this at our release party, but I did not show you this....
Look what popped up! I attached a piece of white CS I cut to resemble a slice of bread and sponged the edges with brown to give a nice and toasted look (hee!) then attached it to word window punched handle so it can go up and down to hide or reveal the greeting.
