Ohhhh So Girly....

Greetings Blogging Friends,
Here we are, it's Monday again, and the summer seems to be flying by.  I can't believe it's August already.  Come to think of it, Today is my Hubby's birthday.... 

Today I have a very girly card to show you.  I created this "Cupcake" shaped card using none other than "Cupcake" from Belles 'n Whistles.  She's perfect for this girly shaped card, don't you think?

The challenge this week over on the Belles 'n Whistles Challenge blog was chosen by our lovely Kathrin, and she says "Oh So Girly" is the theme.  So come on over, and join us, showing us your "girly" side.

I used white flocking powder for the first time on this card.  I saw it in the store, and thought I'd like to try it.  Once dried, it didn't seem to stay as much as I had hoped.  Or shall I say it only kept a very thin layer, I was hoping for a little more of a fluffy look.    That is when I decided to add the cotton candy colored Stickles, to help make the icing look a little more full and textured.  I'm glad I bought the flocking powder, I'm sure I will find some uses for it, but using it for creating a frosting effect on cakes etc, isn't really the ideal place for it.  Anyone have any tips???  I'd love to hear them.

I am also entering this card into these challenges
