Truly Scrumptious Challenge #3

Hello Friends, its been a while since my last post, I do apologize. But I am back with another Truly Scrumptious challenge for you. We have another sketch challenge for you with a twist. You must use something shiny on your creation. So here is the sketch for you to follow:

and here is my sample:

Now I used a strip of shiny purple cardstock on the bottom. Unfortunately, it is really hard to photograph. When taking this picture on the angle, that strip of cardstock looks black. When shooting the picture straight on, the only way you can tell that strip is purple, is from the the flash reflection. This card really looks much cutier in real life, I promise.

Now if you want to learn from my example, stay away from dark shiny cardstock. Maybe you can try brads or glassy glaze or what ever you may find in your stash!!!

Dont forget to check out the Truly Scrumptious Challenge Blog to see all the other beautiful creations from the rest of the Design Team!!! This sketch was designed by Beth this week.

Hi Danita - fabulous colours and delicious cupcake.
Know what you mean about shiny - it just doesn't photograph does it?
