Just a Light Sprinkling.....

This week it's Mel who's our Dare Setter over on the Daring Cardmakers


For this dare I'd like you to create a card using sprinkles (ala teeny tiny dots/spots).
You might add a splash of french knots, small sequins, teeny buttons, hand drawn dots, paint splotches or think up something else thats teeny, tiny and sprinkled.

As soon as I saw the dare I knew it was the perfect chance to use some new papers that arrived last week. I couldn't resist buying these new collections from Imaginisce, one set is called Baby Powder and is the most delightful range of pretties for baby themed cards and LOs - not had a chance to use those yet, but I'll get there eventually.

The little beauties I have used are from a collection is called "All Kinds of Happy" and they are cmpletely delicious! Pretty colours, a few touches of glitter and loads of lovely party themed designs - I love them all.
My "Sprinkles" are the tiny dots around the edge of the card, plus the coloured dots on the paper, some of which I've added beads too and the others I've highlighted with Glossy Accents.
The Greeting bit is cut from another of the papers in the collection, then I made a couple of scalloped circles with my Craft Robo to mount it on.
The lovely bi-coloured ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis
Please check out the Daring Cardmakers Blog to see the beautiful cards made by the Design team - and then hopefully you'll be inspired to do some sprinkling on your own cards too
