Cupcake Crafts #57 – Pearls and Swirls

The theme over at Cupcake Crafts this week is ‘Pearls and Swirls’. I have managed to overcome my fears and not only open my new Papertrey Ink papers but actually cut into them too! I’m certain I heard the barely-audible-to-the-human-ear sound of a million tiny high pitched voices screaming in pain as I did it, but cut I did!! These papers are called Pink Patterns and are just completely GORGEOUS, as are all the papers I’ve seen from PTI. I have paper-pieced the polka dot paper for her dress and hat and coloured the rest of her with ProMarkers. The swirl is cut from the Home Accents Cricut cart ( cut a sheet of them so be prepared to see it again!!). The sentiment is also Papertrey Ink. I’m actually entering this over at the Passion For Papertrey challenge this week as they’re asking for a card in your favourite colour. As I’m totally in love with this paper and pink has always been my fave, I think this qualifies!!

Have a peek at the gorgeous DT cards over on the blog too – as always they are stunning.

Right, off to drag out the ironing board (will it EVER end??)
