Penny Black and More September Challenge

Good morning, it's the first Sunday of the new month and that means we have a new theme at Penny Black and More challenge. This month we want to see feminine creations, and hope you'll join us for a chance to win one of the fantastic prizes we're giving away from our wonderful sponsors!

I made a simple card for today. The Cupcake fairy was heat embossed on Bristol Vellum paper and she's been colored with Zig Clean Color watercolor markers and a Zig Detailer waterbrush. The sentiment from the set  Friendship was also heat embossed, this time with white embossing powder on black card stock. Patterned paper is by DCWV, I've had for a really long time, I think it's from the Birthday Stack, and I added a pink button with some jute twine as an embellishment. A wink of stella glitter brush was used to add some sparkle to the cupcake, tutu, fairy wings and tiara. The card base is Neenah linen textured card stock.

Below are some of the product links as found on Amazon for those of you interested.
