being inspired

this morning i'm sharing a card i made for the current re-be inspired challenge over at the alley way stamps! :)

i just love the colors - pink, yellow, grey and polka dots! yes! :)
i used the hey cupcake stamp set from TAWS, to make this sugary sweet thank you card! :)

it's hard to capture on camera, but the cupcake 'frosting, is actually a little bit of  shaker! i stamped the frosting on to the pink paper, which i glittered, and then put a layer of clear acetate over top of that (then i added the white sparkly confetti polka dots!). then i stamped the cupcake icing onto the yellow background and cut it out, so the shaker would be under the yellow background! :)


i stamped the sentiment onto a banner that i had lying on my desk from another card, for which it didn't make the cut!). i punched a small hole into the banner and attached it to the card with some (slate) grey twine from the twinery! :) lastly, i sprinkled a little pearls onto the card and vwa-la! 

*this picture just shows the acetate-ness of the card, that's why it's so dark and unappealing :)

i was totally going for a new spin on the polka dots with the shaker element! :)
enjoy!
