LLPC012 - Embellished Cupcake

Wow, it's the end of the weekend already! I've been meaning to post this card all day. Last night I went to Scrapmania with my friends Heather and Jess and we had a blast. I managed to get THREE {eek, only three!} cards done, and this is one of them. Quality over quantity!! {Right?}

Mandy over at Limelight Papercrafts posted her bi-weekly sketch challenge plus product focus, and I really wanted to play along since I hadn't done one in awhile. So this was one of the projects on my "must do" list last night at Mania. Here is the sketch:



as you can see I accidentally "mirror image'd" it, LOL. The product focus was to use textured elements.

My texture was the pink tulle, the satiny ribbon along the seam of the paper, and the pearls on the cupcake. I actually used textured and bling'd cardstock as the card base as well (but then I covered it up with patterned paper! oops!). The image is from Pink Papery Studios.

You still have a few hours to play along with Mandy's fun sketch!

8 people made my day!:
