Heart Song Inspiration Challenge #15

Hi Everyone!!
Gosh this week has flown by! It's been a busy one for me, but I got to spend some fabulous playtime with my two beautiful nieces yesterday, so I'm happy!

Well it's Heart Song Inspiration Challenge time again!
For this week we're asking you to "Use Glitter and/or Chipboard".
(Ahhhhh!!! Glitter??? Really??!!) I'm not a huge fan of glitter. Well more specifically the uncontrollable and everlasting aftermath... The way it multiplies and spreads onto every surface of the house!
So I thought I would cheat a little (hehehe) and use glittered paper instead of the loose stuff. Mental note.... Next time ensure that the 'glittered' paper is the glued-in kind that doesn't just rub off! Even my poor kitty cat now sparkles!
But hey... It really is pretty MME paper. I just might sit in the bath tub next time I use it lol!
To fit the chipboard part of the challenge into my card I added an embellishment that matched the paper.
I hope you can play along too! You don't have to use a Heart Song image (but of course we would love you to!). You could win an image of your choice from the Heart Song Designs store!

This time I'm using the sweet Heart Song Lovely Cupcake image, and followed the Sweet Stop Sketch.

Hope you like how it turned out...

And another angle...

Thanks for visiting and hope you can play along with us at Heart Song Inspirations this week!

Jennifer Scull said...

what an absolutely gorgeous card with Leah's pretty cuppie! and here's a hint for you with the glitter - I use stickles glue and shimmerz paint for most of my glittering.... they don't rub off or get everywhere. but then again, you don't get a pretty sparkly kitty either. ;) tee hee!

Bev said...

super cute cupcake.... thanks for playing along at Pattie's Creations.. hope to see you again soon... hugs Bev DT

Anne said...

What a delicious card! Thank you for joining in with this week’s Phindy’s Place Challenge, do hope you’ll play again this Friday!

Chris said...

I hate glitter too. I'm always afraid I'll get it in my eyes, just a little paranoid about that and like you said, the aftermath. I've found a glitter rag that's all tacky is pretty good at clean up but I still hardly use the stuff. I do like stickles. enough about me,
I love that cupcake, it's gorgeous, I wish I could take a bite out of it. It's one of the prettiest cupcakes images I've seen and there are hundreds of them out there, thanks for sharing this one and playing with us at Cupcake Inspirations.

Super yummy! And I think you treated the glitter issue with a lot of "dignity" :)...really smart to use glittered paper instead!
I really don't mind having glitter all over the house ;)))))
