Sprinkles and smiles

It's almost Friday!

I was in the mood to make a fun card recently, and this is the end result. I pulled out some of my old favorites: Cupcake Collection, Background Basics: Petal Power, my sewing machine and glitter!

Sprinkles and smiles

Here's a close up of the sparkle:

What a fun card to make! It's quite large...I think about 8 in x 5 in. Not sure how I'll get it in a envelope.

Hope you have a great day!
