Elemental Inspiration

Happy New Year!!!
This is my first post after the Christmas holidays and I hope you all had a lovely time.
Its also the first challenge of 2016 from Daring Cardmakers.  As its the first Friday of the month after the break we have a lovely Elemental Inspiration challenge for you.
Jo our lovely host this week has picked the gorgeous picture below.
Remember to use at least 3 elements. 
The elements I have used are:
colours - I just love the pop of red
heart and stars
corrugated card to match the cupcake cases.
ric rac ribbon
glitter card
I have used a lot of elements this time but as you can see in the picture there are a few to choose from.
I have used a star embossing folder which I purchase from my lovely friend at Kerudoc Creation and embossed the stars onto white corrugated card.  I have also used some Tim Holtz dies to create the scalloped edges along with a piece of ric rac.

I have also included my favourite die!! The sentiment is from a selection at Pink Petticoat and I have finished with some sequins.
Don't forget to stop by the Design Team Blogs for more inspiration.
