Pretty purple cupcake !
Hello to you all I have been on a card making roll this last week ! How ? you ask - well it'simple - I haven't done the ironing or the dusting and only just the very bare minimum of housework - So the house is clean enough but I wouldn't want the queen to pop in ! Luckily I'm pretty sure that isn't going to happen so ........ !
This card was inspired by a blog that I adore Cupcake Creations. Each Saturday the uber talented Mona sets a challenge. This is the 1st week I have taken part as I am usually super intimidated by the talent of, not only Mona but the other entrants, their cards are all so cool and classy.
This week however I decided that to grow I have to play and experiment so thats what I am doing ! My card definately does not live up up to some of the others entered but I am very pleased with it.
Here is the inspiration photo and I was so happy to have a change from christmas cards.
Firstly my card base is made from a silvery pearlescent card from my A4 card folder and I cut it down to make a 5" x 7" card.
I have used papers from pink petticoat and that yummy cupcake is from them too. I gave it a liberal sprinkling of doodlebug sugar coating glitter to give it a twinkle !
The satin ribbon is from my local craft store capture the magic.
I popped up one of the clouds (top left corner) with another pink petticoat paper in the same design but a slightly darker purple shade and added lots more doodlebug sugar coating glitter to it.
This is also my 1st attempt at ribbon ruffling and, although it's not perfect, I love the lush effect is gives.
That little tag is from an old K & Co kit and I stamped "hello" onto it with a HOTP clear stamp.
So there it is I do hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it (yes I was covered head to toe with glitter !) - thanks for stopping by x
I would also like to add this card to the following challenges;
Cupcake Creations - Color challenge
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Sparkle & shine
Stamps R Us - Sparkles and Scallops
Have a great week x
