Limelight Sketch Challenge



You all are so nice (no one mentioned the red line stamp dimensional on my card)...I noticed when I was cleaning my craft space the red backing of a dimensional on top of this card and immediately went to my photo file and sure enough there it was...I totally missed it. haha, LOL! Can you find it in the second photo?



Limelight Papercrafts blog has a great sketch challenge on their blog that I just had to try. You can find the sketch HERE and the challenge was to use pink bling. Now pink is my absolute favorite color (I am quite a girly girl) so I was excited to try this one!  The cupcake image is from the new Gina K. set Sweetest Blessings...it is just the most adorable stamp :o)

After coloring the cupcakes with Copics, I covered them with Cotton Candy stickles to make them sparkle (that is where the "bling" comes in).  The sweet sentiment is from the retired SU set: Love Matters.  And don't you just love the designer paper?  It is a sheet in the Basic Grey Bittersweet line...and it is sooo pretty! I am already sad because I am running out... :o(   I know Mandy carries it in here store...you can find it here.
Have a great weekend!
