Cupcake Chic

Glitter and rhinestones and buttons... ohh my! And don't forget the doily and wrinkle ribbon. I'm just head over heels for all the special (and sassy) somethings on today's card. The color combo is inspired by the current challenge at The Play Date Cafe. Initially, I was stumped... grey, brown, and silver. What's a girl to do? Break out the glitter, of course. ;)

On a side note: My Kitschy Kitchen card for last week's Play Date Cafe challenge was chosen for the Fab 4. Thanks, gals! I just love to play at the cafe!

I'm also popping this in over at Crazy 4 Challenges. They're using script backgrounds this week... such a versatile element that can be bold, or in this case, very subtle. See you again soon!

Stamps: PTI: Signature Series Cupcake and die, Text Style, sentiment: Friendship Jar and label die; Paper: Making Memories, SU Kraft and Chocolate Chip, PTI Rustic Cream; Sassy Somethings: wrinkle ribbon from Etsy: Prairie Bird Boutique, PTI buttons
