Pear Tree Designs #51 - SPARKLE

Hey there!! Thank you to everyone who joined in with our sketch challenge last week - it was great to see everyones interpretations! So fun. Congrats to the winner JEMIMA'S JEMS. Get in touch with Donna to claim your prize.

This week over at Pear Tree Designs we have a super fun challenge for you.. 'SPARKLE'.. we want to see those shimmery/ shiny/ glittery/ sparkly projects. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Our sponsor this week is Meljen Designs and the DT were lucky enough to play with some of their images, I chose Birthday Cupcake - it's sooo fancy!!

 Here is my take on the challenge..

I wanted to have a go at a CAS card, haven't done one of those for a while.. if ever?! Not too sure how well it went, I couldn't help but to add a few lengths of bakers twine from The Ribbon Girl, the colours were just too perfect. I have used PTI Hibiscus Burst cardstock to make my card base and added a layer of SU! Certainly Celery cardstock which I have stamped with a PTI stamp in SU! Sage Shadow ink.

I have fussy cut the digi and added dimensional adhesive to the back to make it pop off the card. I added a strip of cupcake paper from a MME Lime Twist pack and tied some bakers twine behind the image. I have added some Cotton Candy Stickles around the outside of the green cardstock and some Diamond Stickles to the stars of the cupcake.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Ellephantastic - Birthday/Party
× The Secret Crafter - #136 CAS
× Totally Gorjuss - Strings The Thing

Thanks for stopping by today, I'm off to get some more of this LAST EVER ASSIGNMENT researched!! I cannot WAIT to get it finished and printed off!!

xo Lou Mac.
