Whew! Can you believe it? Here's post number three for the day! I mean, after all I've been absent for around a month & then here I am happily posting away like there's no tomorrow! Guess it's either a "feast or a famine" as the saying goes! LOL!!
Although I haven't had time to update my blog until today I have been busily creating & the above card was one I made for my stamping buddy Keryn whose birthday was earlier this month.
Anyone who knows Keryn will know she's not really a "girly girl" so I took a bit of a risk using pink on my card but as I wanted to use my new cupcake stamp & had decided the icing was going to be pink right from the beginning, Keryn didn't get much choice! (Sorry matey!).
For the panel on the left, I've used New Zealand made embossed card which has been layered on a brown base & the cupcake stamp is from the "Montarga" range. Just to add to the "girly" look I couldn't resist adding a few light pink self adhesive rhinestones to the corners of the cupcake panel ~ not to mention the large pink rhinestone on the top of the cuppie!
I had a bit to trouble getting this card together for some reason ~ I don't know if it's because I always find it challenging to make a card for a fellow cardmaker/stamper or what ~ but I was thrilled with the end result :D
The smile on Keryn's face when I gave it to her kind of gave me the impression that I'd been forgiven for my outburst of "girly, girly" too ~ I think!
Until next time.....
