New Challenge #67 at Glitter and Sparkle

Hello everyone
Hope you are all having a good week.
Well it time to return to normality,
and to try and lose all the excess of 
Christmas and New Year.
Somehow though Crafting seems more
fun than exercising lol.

Well on with this weeks card:-

The Theme at Glitter n
Sparkle is:-

(And for mine I used Lace - Digi - Bling)

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Lacy Sunshine who are offering
3 Images from their store

Bugaboo who are offering
7 Images from their store

Floppy Latte who are offering
a $6 Gift Certificate for their store

Stitchy Bear Stamps who are offering
a $10 Gift Certificate for images from Stitchy, 
My Hearts Pieces, Scrappers Delights

Di's Digi Downloads who are offering

My Project for this week is:-

WO Cupcake Tower digi stamp 
from Bugaboo (one of our sponsors)

For my base card I used a piece of A4 White Card 
which I folded in half and cut to make a Square.

I then used some Brown Cupcake Paper
which I cut to fit my card, 
and then using the middle 
Rectangle Parenthesis 2 (5 pk)
Die-Cut out a 'Window' in the paper.

Using some Bronze Pearlised Paper 
I cut a triangle to fit over one corner of my card,
and also Die-Cut out a circle, 
using 2nd smallest Framelit Circles (8 pk)

I then coloured in my Image using 
my Promarker Pens.
And then cut a square big enough
to fit behind my 'window'.

For my sentiment I used the
Birthday Cake Tag digi stamp 
from Bugaboo (one of our sponsors).
Which I coloured in with my 
Promarkers, and Die-Cut out using
the largest Circle from the 
Framelits Basic Shapes Pack 
which I then glued to the Bronze Circle.

For my finishing touches 
I wrapped a length of the 30mm White Lace
(Boyes, Haberdashery)
around the corner of the card 
on top of the Bronze paper.
Then handmade a Bow 
from the same lace and placed it 
at the corner of the 'Window'.

In a triangle around the Bronze paper
I added 9 Iridescent Coffee 
3mm Flat Back Rhinestone Glitter Gems,
And in the middle of them put 1 Bronze
5mm Round Flatback Dotted Rhinestone Gem.
In the 4 Corners of the 'Window' 
where the tags are I put, 
Clear Crystal 5mm Round Flatback 
Dotted Rhinestone Gems.
And in the bottom left hand corner 
and on the top of the Bow,
I put Clear Crystal 10mm Round Flatback 
Dotted Rhinestone Gems.
(all Gems come from my stash)
