Shabby Sparkle!

Hello campers - hope you've had a good Monday!

Look at this - three posts in a row, I love having my stash so accessible! Tonight I've created a card for the Cupcake Challenge this week where their theme is "Shabby Sparkle"....if you need some inspiration pop over to the Cupcake blog and see all the gorgeous DT cards.


Now if I'm honest I'm not too keen on shabby...I like my nice clean cut lines too much, but for this shabby card I got tearing! I've used pinks and blues together...I really like this colour combo. For my stamps I've used a happy birthday sentiment and a cupcake, the cupcake has been fixed onto the card with 3D sticky pads to make it pop! For my sparkle I used some stickles on the icing of the cake. I finished the card with some faux white stitching around the outer edge and around the sentiment.

I'd also like to enter this card at the Free and Easy challenge over at Allsorts this week.

Thanks for popping by today, see you soon!
