Life is sweet

This is another card using one of the many Pink Petticoat images that I have collected, this one is called Lola Rose Cupcakes and I have coloured her with ProMarkers.


I spent ages trying to embellish this card, I tried ribbon, twine, sequins and gems but nothing looked right so I have left it really clean and simple.  All that I have added is a Marianne stamped sentiment, some Wink of Stella glitter to the cupcakes and frill on her dress and some 3D Crystal Lacquer to her earings, necklace and shoes.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations Challenge 261 - White plus one other colour
Ruby's  Rainbow Challenge 77 - Ladies
Papertake Weekly Challenge - White + 1
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Keep in Clean and Simple
Less Is More Challenge Week 168 - Makes me smile! (Cupcakes always make me smile!)

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.

I think you have done right just adding the sentiment. It is too gorgeous and image to be surrounded by embellies.
