Mmmm Cake!

This week on Cute Card Thursday we are loving cake! Well, who doesn't .. .. so please share your delicious delights with us.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Nikki at Bunny Zoe's crafts, please stop by the CCT blog to read all about it and see what the rest of the team have created.

For my card I've inked up one of my LOTV girlie stamps, called cupcake I think, and perfect for the theme.  She's coloured with Copics then I've added clear glaze to the cherries on top of the cakes and Stickles to her petticoat.  Here's the card - I've hit the auto bright button so it's now too bright, but I thought my little preview was looking dull - somewhere I'll figure out how to get a happy compromise between the two .. ..

The papers are some of my specials by Stamping Up! and although I love them, I've told myself that I have to cut them up before I can buy any new gorgeousness .. .. ah well!  The flower is another one I made by painting the die cut MD daisies with Twinkling H2Os, then a little die cut leaf spray and butterflies finish things off. I didn't want to add too much in the way of embellishments and cover up the pretty paper, so I sat on my hands for this one!  

I used dies from these Marianne Design sets:

pink doily mat - CR1201
ivory doily mat - CR1248
ivory border mat - CR1250
daisy flowers - LR0106
leaves - CR1245
butterflies - LR0261

The Stampavie and More challenge is to use doilies, I have two doily mats behind my image so hope that counts.

Thank you for stopping by to take a peek at my creations, and hope you will call in again soon.  Enjoy your day, keep cool (hey it's raining here in north Cornwall!) and keep crafting!
