This week the Monday challenge for Embellies with a Twist at The Crafter's Cafe is "Swirls". Please join us this week with your creation using swirls. If you are not already a member of The Crafter's Cafe, it is free to join up, and we would love to have you along.
This card also features the colours for the colour challenge at A Blog Names Hero "Color me a Hero" - Challenge #5. (I am from New Zealand so I used the UK way of spelling colour). I didn't have the forth greeny/yellow colour so I have kept to the other three, pink, light blue and brown/kraft.
I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge - "Anything Goes"
Here is my card:
Image: "Cupcake digital stamp" from The Stamping Boutique.
Stamps: Hero Arts Happy Birthday
Ink: Versafine Black
Cardstock: dusty pink, blue and kraft
Other: Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder, gems, glossy accents, Copics BG01 & RV02
I initially started off with just one cupcake, but that didn't seem to be enough for the card, so I decided to do three of different sizes. I coloured the cupcakes using copics. I dry embossed the swirls onto kraft card, framed this with blue and added it to my pink card. I used dimensionals to mount my cupcakes onto the card. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment onto pink card, added the banner shape to one end and framed it with the blue cardstock. I also added this using dimensionals Lastly I added some gems and glossy accents on the top of the cupcake.
Thanks for stopping by and for your comments which are always gratefully received.
Have a great week.
