Soft Pencil Thursday!!!!!!

Hello! It is Soft Pencil Thursday! This week we were asked to use an image called "Girl on a Cupcake", use shades of pink, and pearls. No problem, I love to use pearls. I thought that maybe a birthday card for a girl child would be a good use for this image. I also used an embellishment that I haven't used in forever.....seed beads. I smeared some Stampin Up Crystal Effects on the cupcake, then sprinkled on some beads, then set aside to dry.

The ovals were cut with my Spellbinder's Nestibilities, The sentiment was cut with my Stampin Up Modern Label punch, backed with a large oval punch. The card base is Kraft, the ovals are Melon Mambo, and the Designer paper is from Stampin Up's Sale-a-bration promotion that just ended. It was in a 6x6 pad called "Welcome Neighbor". The pearls are from the usual place......Michael's Craft Store. Oh, and everything except the DSP is popped up a bit with some foam dimensionals. I think that covers everything. If you have any questions feel free to click the email link on my sidebar or leave a comment.

I have some big news to tell you next time that came from Stampin Up. Something really exciting is going on with the new catalog set to release July 1st.
