Agent Cupcake Descending

Welcome to another challenge from Little Miss Muffet Challenges! This week our challenge theme is to use metal embellishments. I couldn't think of any better way to use this metal star that has been sitting on my desk unclaimed by the kids.

I used one of my new stamps, Agent Cupcake Descending, which was released last week. I had coordinated the colors with some paper on the desk - if you haven't noticed, I get a lot of inspiration from things left on my desk. LOL If it isn't put away you're sure to see it on another project soon enough. ;D

I wanted to mix up the elements on this card so I have heart themed paper but in earth tones; a nice big flower but made out of rough corduroy fabric; swirl flourished but in stark black; and finally the metal star as the shining embellishment but with a fun adventurous theme just like the image.

I'm also excited to show you the back of my card! I "cashed in" all my chips and favors with my good friend Zoe and begged her to make a couple custom stamps. Ok, it wasn't all that hard to do, but it has been one of the best special one-time favors ever! Thanks Zoe! :D

Did you know? The official name of the Philippines has changed several times in the course of the country's history. During the Philippine Revolution, the Malolos Congress proclaimed the establishment of the República Filipina or the Philippine Republic. From the period of the Spanish-American War and the Philippine-American War until the Commonwealth period, American colonial authorities referred to the country as the Philippine Islands, a translation of the Spanish name. During the American period the name Philippines began to appear and it has since become the country's common name. Since independence the official name of the country has been the Republic of the Philippines.
