Cupcake Challenge 78 - Keep it Simple!

Hello everyone and what a lovely day it is - the sun is shining at long last! My make today is for the Cupcake Challenge 78 with the theme "Keep it Simple". Not always easy to do as you get the desire to fully embellish you're card with beads, brads, ribbon and flowers! But I am very pleased with this design and managed to fully resist the urge, only using pearls and ribbon!

For this card I used:-

  • Magnolia Waiting Tilda Stamp
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities
  • Pearlescent Card with Sizzix Flowers Texture Plate
  • Papermania Pearls
  • American Crafts Satin Ribbon
  • Sakura Souffle Pens with Waterbrush
  • Anitas Greeting

I hope you like it!
