Flowers - Prima
Banner Die and Oval Doily Die - My Favorite Things
Glitter - Stickles in Diamond and Candy Cane
Ribbon, Trim and Lace - Wrights
Pearls - Martha Stewart Brides
Acrylic Letters - The Paper Studio



This was the sketch option this week




I decorated the back and added a message mat for a personal greeting.


I decided to go with a Center Stair Step fold for this card, the image wasn't very big and I wanted to give it as much "ummpph" as I could :)
I cut out the whole image as well as paper piecing the cupcake wrappers. I then popped it up on foam for more dimension and added lots of Stickles glitter.
I really like how it all came together and hope you do too and also hope that you can come along and join in with us this week in The Pixie Cottage! Katie
