Cute as a cupcake

Wow 3 blog posts in one week this is a rareity lol! Well as I mentioned in my other post I am keen to start entering challenges. I wanted to enter them as I think they're great at giving you a little push to try something new or different. Thanks to Nic's comments on a previous post I found a few challenges that interested me so decided to try and combine them together. I've never understood how people do that because sometimes I see cards that qualify for loads of challenges, so I decided to write down the challenges that grabbed my attention, it started with a sketch then went onto embellishments and then colour, so the 4 four challenges I am entering this card into are as follows -



Sketch Saturday - Sketch challenge - I followed the sketch exactly - I have no imagination lol


Simon says Stamp - Sparkle and Shine - I used glitter a gemstone and glossy accents


CES challenge - Embellish it - I used buttons, ribbon and a gemstone


Colour Create - White/Cream/Brown + 1 other colour and include buttons and flowers - I chose pink as my 4th colour and I cheated and used a flower shape button - hope that's allowed :-)



The glitter didn't look too glittery on the first shot so here's a little close up



I hope you like it because I loved making it, and thanks again to Nic for leading me to those challenges.
