TCPTues {celebrate 3-2-1}

I'm back with a TCP Tuesday Challenge. The Cat's Pajamas DT is bringing you a new challenge to play along with each week. Kimberly is our hostess this week and she has challenged us with a 3-2-1 challenge. Use 3 different patterned papers, 2 different types of embellishments (die cuts, buttons, brads, gems, pearls, etc) and 1 type of twine, seam binding or ribbon. I hope you'll play along with us. I'll have the rest of the challenge details listed at the bottom of my post. You can also pop on over to the TCP BLog for more inspiration.

I used this adorable bun from the One Cupcake set. Stamped him on x-press blending cs and then colored him up with my Copic markers. I added in my 3rd piece of pattern paper by piecing in the sweet little cupcake liner.

I added touched of Stickles Glitter to the confetti detail already on the cupcake.  I counted that as my first embellie and then added a trio of sequins for my second embellishment. 
The brown twine was my 1 bit of twine. 

I did not count my dies as my embellies, since I used them as some of my layers. Yes, I changed the rules a bit for my card. That's Ok....use the challenge as a guide and as inspiration. We just want you to ink up those TCP stamps and create something. 

I used the Dots Cutups die to create a fun tone on tone polka dotted background to set the festive tone of my card. The sentiment and image were mounted on the rectangle from Framed Up  . The sketch is from last week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge. 

Here are the Details on how you can join in on the fun:
  1. Each Tuesday a new challenge will be posted here on this blog as well as on ourSplitcoaststampers forum and our Facebook page.
