Paper Sundaes with Belles n' Whistles!

Good Morning - I hope your weekend is going great! I'll be working later today, but right now it's time for another challenge at Paper Sundaes Challenge blog. You won't want to miss what the Design Team has in store for you this week. Our sponsor is Belles n' Whistles and the challenge is an easy one - you just need to use at least 3 embellishments! You can definitely handle that - right! Belles n' Whistles has the most beautiful images by Elisabeth Bell will want the whole collection when you see how great they are!

I used the Belles n' Whistles Cupcake image this week...isn't she sweet! And how cute is that little kitty! I chose to combine this card with a few (wink!) other challenges, so here it goes.

Since I decided to use the Color Throwdown colors this week, I began by coloring her with some pretty bright colors of copics and cut her out with my Spellbinders scalloped ovals dies. I also folded a piece of cardstock and cut it out witht the same size die leaving just the edge uncut and mounted my image onto this smaller flap on the front - you can see this in the inset picture! It's like a card on top of a card! I added a little bling to her hat, shirt and cupcake with some Stickles.
Can you get enough embossing? I can't - so I embossed my papers using a Cuttlebug Heritage set embossing folder and inked the green cardstock to bring out the embossed pattern. A little yummy lacey ribbon that matches perfectly leads to a ticket stamped with a Papertrey Ink sentiment...the inside sentiment is PTI too! The cupcake stamp inside is from Our Craft Lounge and also has some blingy Stickles on it.

Here come the embellishments - three beautiful hydrangea flowers from Prima with some Basic Grey brads! How easy was that! Okay, so now you need to head on over to the Paper Sundaes challenge blog and see for yourself!
