No Peeking!

SmARTworks is launching their bi-monthly tea party challenge and everyone is invited to participate. Dina at Mama Dini's Stamperia is hosting the very first challenge and she has chosen this layout challenge (see below). The left panel needs to contain an image with sentiment and the 3 panels on the right can be anything you want.

This is what I came out with and as long as my daughter agrees that she likes it and as she says it "It's good, Mom and you have 7 details on this card", meaning when I added sparkles on both of the party hats, crystal effects on both balloons and the nose of the mouse so it's all shiny and added liquid appliqué to the cupcake for a yummy frosting with red dew drop as a cherry, it's good and ready to post here.

The mouse is from Whipper Snapper Design, No Peeking! This mouse reminds me of my daughter. When I say "I have something for you", I don't have to ask her to cover her eyes. She wants to be surprised, so she covers her eyes but I know she's peeking!.


Stamps: No Peeking! from Whipper Snapper Design

Paper: Whisper White, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip card stock and Cutie Pie DSP from Stampin' Up

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black Ink and Stampin' Up re-inkers

Accessories: White Liquid Applique, Lime Green and Crystal Stickles, Making Memories Blue Floss, Stampin' Dimensional and Crystal Effects
