I didn't think I was going to get a chance to take part this week but I managed it with a few hours to spare.
This week's muse over at the Muse Challenge blog is Michelle Williams who has created a cute little card with the sentiments framed within lots of colourful images.
I decided to use the same idea and layout for my card...
When I saw Michelle's card I knew I wanted to use one of my new Stampin' Up stamp sets, 'Stacks of Wishes' which is a hostess set. I then went in search of images from other stamp sets to match the sentiments. I was hoping I would find smaller images to create more of a frame but no luck. So the finished card isn't how I initially visualised it would be, but I still quite like it :)
I used Versa Color ink to stamp the images and finished off a few areas with ProMarkers (parcel and flames). I then added some Stickles glitter glue to the parcel ribbon and added my new favourite craft item, Glossy Accents, to the icing on the cupcakes.
