Cupcake Craft Challenge - Don't Be Square!

Well, Good evening! I have been trying to make this post all day, but have had many distractions. I love this time of day when everyone is in bed, but me. Trouble is I'm usually ready for bed myself.
At last I have had a play with my new Leanne Ellis stamps which I got from Funky Kits last week. This is a really simple card which I am entering into the Cupcake Craft Challenge #88 - Don't Be Square! No square cards are allowed, so I just used a folded off-cut of black card as the base.
I have coloured this stamp (which I am a in love with - it is my fave of the 6 new ones) with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers. I added sparkle to her hair with my Copic Spicia clear glitter pen, and I have added Stickles Stardust to her dress and flower bling her up.

The gorgeous paper is from the new Craftwork Cards Sugar & Spice collection. I have just used a length of black tulle, a charm fixed on with a brad, and woodware mosaic squares to finish the card.
Hope you like it....and thanks for looking!

this is a beautiful car Jenny - love what you have done with the tulle. bought some of that years ago and never used it.
can you explain what you did with it (what shape did it start as, how have you gathered it, how have you attached it etc) - i'd love ot use some of mine on my cards and love the effect of it!

Hi Kathleen. I have used a strip about 3 inches in width and just wrapped it around the card and tied it just like a ribbon! Thanks for your comment xx
