JAI#121 - Just Add Pearls
Wow I can't believe that this time last week I was at Convention with all my friends from Australia and New Zealand. I got to meet many of my online friends in person for the first time and most precious of all was the time spent with some of my fellow JAI design team members - I am so blessed to be part of such a beautiful bunch of women. A few couldn't make it, and we missed them a lot...but there is always Brisbane next year...hopefully we'll all make it up to sunny Queensland.
Another highlight for me was having my beautiful BFF here in Canberra. We had early mornings and late nights and lots of giggles in between. We've got some pics and when they're sorted I promise to share.
This week at Just Add Ink we're adding pearls. As you can see I've used lots of them *smile*.
A few things going on with this card...I lattice embossed a square of vellum and layered that onto my Real Red c/s. The 'cup' has been through my crimper, the cake edges have been inked with a dauber and my cherry is cut from Glitter paper and then I hit it heavily with Crystal Effects. Nice and glossy and edible irl. The whole cupcake has been popped up on dimensionals.
I found it hard to photograph this one, the colours look bland and washed out here and I now notice my ribbon has dropped a little - best I fix that up.
Take a look at all the other lovely design team inspiration and join the Challenge with us. We love looking through your entries.
Today is also Delys' birthday, so a super big happy birthday to you! Hope you have a wonderful day and get spoilt rotten by all.
