Cupcake Challenge 57 & Stamp Something

Hello everyone, this week for Cupcake Challenge 57 we have a theme of pearls and swirls...... lush! We also have a a fabulous prize from My Creative Classroom - they are offering a $25 gift certificate to use towards one of their courses. I am also going to enter this card into this weeks Stamp Something Challenge which has a theme of "favourite embellishment" - Mine is ribbon.

This card was for Jeff's niece who has just had her birthday. I have used my gorjuss girls..... again!.... and they have all been coloured with distress inks. I have also decorated the envelope too as an extra touch. The papers are basic grey and I have used my d'vine swirl folder for the embossing.

I used the same papers for the inside and my Gorjuss Girls once again.

Finally, a close up.

Card/Paper: Pink and white card, Basic Grey - Lemonade
Stamps: Sugar Nellie - Gorjuss Girls - Sitting and Just a Girl
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, vintage photo, walnut stain, peeled paint, worn lipstick. Inkssentials pen for highlights.
Embellishments: Ribbon, pearls, stickles
