Sparkle and Shine Challenge #17

Hi there!  It's time for another Sparkle and Shine Challenge!  This is our inspiration photo for the challenge:

We are sponsored this week by Pretty Pink Posh!

Here is my card!  I started off by watercoloring a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper with several shades of Distress Ink to match the color of the dresses in the inspiration photo.  I die cut the watercolor piece with the medium frame from the Tipped Tops die set by Papertrey Ink.  Then, using the largest die from the same set, I cut a mat from dark purple card stock.  I stamped a sentiment from the Carnival Toppers stamp set by Mama Elephant on a strip of white cardstock and cut a banner end on the left side.  I popped that up on the watercolor piece.  Then, I diecut, stamped and colored the frame and one of the cupcakes from the Papertrey Ink Bakers Dozen stamp set.  I adhered the frame with a glue pen, and popped the cupcake up with foam tape.  Then I added a scattering of Sparkling Clear and iridescent sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Happy Birthday
