so sweet...

Hello friends!!  Saturday has rolled around I was able to get my Less is More card done early, again!!  YAY!!  I was also able to combine the LIM challenge with the new Dynamic Duos color combo... double YAY!!


The LIM challenge is week is a sketch and so for my card I used a never been inked Stampin Up! set called Sweet Cake.  The main image in the set is perfect fit for the sketch.  I first stamped the main image using Pink Pirouette and then a second time using Calypso Coral.  I trimmed out the entire pink image and then just the cupcake and the label portion from the Calypso Coral image.  The sentiment was stamped in the label and then everything was layered on the pink image using foam dimensionals.  I embossed the background using my Cuttlebug Modern Wallpaper EF, adhered the main image and then added these super tiny pink rhinestones. 

Thanks for stopping by.... 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Stampin Up! Sweet Cakes; Inks:  SU! Pink Pirouette and Calypso Coral, Memento Tuxedo Black; Embossing Folder:  Cuttlebug; Rhinestones:  Stampin Up!

Hello Rosie
Yes here I am... I am glad somebody missed me!!!!!
Delicious and mouthwatering is how I would describe this card, I love the Bg, it reminds me of icing on a cake, so it is so appropriate to be matched up with your cupcake image.

Beautiful card.
