House Mouse & Friends Challenge #97

This week the House Mouse and Friends Challenge we have a new sort of challenge! We want to see jewels or jewelry like items (beads, findings etc.). I ,had to do a chocolate cupcake and love the way these sprinkles turned out. I used a tiny strip of brown card stock and cut it into tiny pieces. I topped the image with Ranger's Glossy Affects then with the sprinkles. The charm is just some brown beads with a few silver thrown in. The "candy bar" is really card board wrapped in foil. I hope you will have a chance to play along! Be sure to stop by the House Mouse & Friends Challenge Blog to see the sketch and wonderful samples the team has to share with you!
