Happy Sunday everyone. I hope your weekend has been great so far.
Today I was on a mission. To start using new goodies that I had acquired from the HLS Craft Retreat - the other mission was what to choose!
Now, Miss USA (aka Darnell) has a very well timed NBUS challenge that gave me the kick in the pants to get started.
I had seen a couple of fellow bloggers in my feed, posting about the challenge at Cupcake Inspirations. I had a light bulb moment. I had received a gorgeous die set from Susan (fellow teamie at ATCAS) for my birthday in July. It is the mini cupcake by Paper Smooches.
Here is my card -
I die cut the cupcake and sprinkles from Brusho panels that I had spare. The colours are Lime Green and Purple. Love them! I stamped the sentiment with Memento Luxe Ink - Sweet Plum. It is from the Happy Little Stampers Fun Birthday Sentiments set.
The challenge at Cupcake Inspirations is to also decorate the inside of your card. I had the perfect PTI stamp set to go with my cupcake. I RARELY decorate the inside of my cards so thanks for the challenge :)
Here are the challenges that I am entering this card into -
I was looking at the cupcake die and had another light bulb moment. When used upside down it looks like a jellyfish!
The background is a piece from my stash made at the HLS Craft Retreat (using Brusho, Starch and Cling Wrap). I drew the tentacles and added googly eyes for fun :) He looks a little.... angry??
The background die that I used on both cards is one of my new ones from Sizzix. Love it!
I would like to enter this fella into the following challenges -
Allsorts - Use at least 2 dies
Die Cutting' Diva's - Birthday
Thanks for popping in today. Have a great rest of your weekend :)
