Thoughtful Sprinkles - Cute Card Thursday Challenge

Todays card has been created with another of Janet Roberts new Pink Gem stamps, this one is called Thoughtful Sprinkles, I have also used some of my lovely blogcandy that I won from Jacqui, I do so hope she likes what Ive done with it.

I have stamped the image onto white card and coloured it with my Faber-Castell pencils, then cut if out with my Octagon Nestabilitie die, then cut another out of pink card with the Scalloped one, then I have mounted the two together with a piece of foam.

The base card is a 8"x 8" size card, onto this I have layered up a piece of pink pearlescent card with one of the beautiful papers from the Bearly Mine Design Cds, this one is a lovely pink paper with stars on, on top of this Ive layered up another pink card layer but this one is slightly darker and used another of the papers this one a very pretty check design. I have then wrapped a piece of the gorgeous ribbon that Jacqui gave me, its so pretty with a multitude of colours all over it.

I then cut out three stars with my star Nestabilitie die, two from glitter card pink and purple, and one from pink embossed card, these were then arranged in a half circle, then the mounted stamped image was stuck over the centre of them. I have stuck a ribbon greeting strip across the bottom.

I have also used the paper flowers that Jacqui gave me, and with my ball tool I shaped the petals then used some stickles glitter glue around the edges of them, with a jewelled brad in the centre and a crown charm (this was another piece of my candy) hung it from the bottom flower. I then punched out some leaves and with some silicone glue stuck them onto the card, with the flowers on top. To finish of the card I have stuck some star gems around the edges.

Claudia has suggested I submit this for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, so I have.

Shirley this is absolutely gorgeous and sparkly love that image and your colours they always work so well. Sometimes I think I am colour blind because mine sometimes don't seem to match. I have got my Bearlymine CD today and wow the papers are fantastic so maybe I will improve a little now.
