I'm back with another Pun Fun card, this time for the new Retro Sketches card sketch, which is adorable! I used the Wood Grain B&T from the new Dakota packet, which is also what we are using for scrapbook club next month. My beloved Silver Shimmer Trim is back, only this time I cut it in half lengthwise to create the double skinny stripes. I also used the Shimmer Trim to back my little sentiment banner flag. Aaaaand tonight I ordered up more of this Slate Satin Polka Dot Ribbon as I can see it is now an addiction. I stitched all around the outside with a single strand of pink thread.
I paper pieced the cuppie using the pink B&T from La Belle Vie and the Flirty Raspberry CS only available in the Flirty paper packet. This sweet cuppie is stamped in the new Slate color, and topped with Sparkles that have been colored with a Cotton Candy Alcohol Marker. Look at the top pics to see how the sparkles turned such a lovely shade of pink - I think I bumped up the highlights on this one trying to get the B&T of the "frosting" to show nicely and washed out the sparkles. I LOVE that I can color my sparkles and embellies with my lovely new markers and customize them to match perfectly!
