Cupcake Bling

Hi there,

Today is such a rainy, dreary day that it's perfect for card making. I'm so glad that Heather found her camera and I'm looking forward to seeing her posts this week. I LOVE her latest post with the star scrapbook and coordinating card. For my card I went to a few blogs to participate in some challenges. First I used the sketch challenge #69 from Inkspirations Challenges. Then I went to CR84FN Color Challenge for their CR84RN28 colour challenge. Next I went to Use It Tuesday for their challenge #7 to use some bling. I love all the texture in this card from my new square lattice embossing folder to the pom pom trim to the sponging I did. I really like the effect. What do you think? I'd love to receive your comments.

Here's what I came up with:

Here's a close up of the glitter on the cupcake:
