Hello and Thinking of You....Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #371~Shine Bright, Little Tangles Challenge #71~Shakers and Sequins

Hello!

Welcome to\ Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #371, where our Surprise Sweetie, Wendy, and the team invite you "Shine Bright" with your creations this week.  Look at those diamonds! And that layer of icing! Scrumptious!


Danielle, over at Neat and Tangled, is our generous sponsor for this challenge; one lucky winner will receive a $15 gift certificate!  


The DT were also offered a discount on N&T products, so I added the Heart of Gold die to my collection. Soooo pretty...and it cuts like butter!  For my cards, I drew inspiration from the photo's colours and images. For *shine*...gold shimmer paper on this one...


and teal shimmer on this....


For more inspiration, please visit the Cupcakes site, where you'll come away, *shining brightly* at all  the inspiration you'll see:



Stage turned over to you! 
Looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery!

A huge THANK YOU to Danielle for supporting this challenge and the team! Hugs galore!

  1. What a sweet bonus to come here and find two fabulous cards this week! I almost chose that die as well. Your cards are making me think I really "need" this die. ;0)

  2. Oh my, Carol! You are creating such beauties with that die. I like all the sparkle and shimmer you've achieved. So glad you got that lovely heart die. I can tell you are having a ton of fun with it. I really like the texture of the embossing on the second card, too. But that shaker steals the spotlight for me. So well done! Makes me pop a mega watt smile! :) (to borrow a phrase from you) Hugs!!
