Oranges and Lemons

This week on Cute Card Thursday our theme is Oranges and Lemons - nice and refreshing for the sunshine we are having this summer.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Whimsy Stamps, please check out the CCT blog for details and inspiration from the rest of the DT ladies.

As my Copics are put away for the moment, my card is created just with die cuts, all from Marianne Design apart from the scallop circle mat.  I'm a little lacking in the orange but have used orange ink to edge my layers and to add colour to the embossed areas on the bottom daisy layer.  Sorry the picture is a bit blurry, I have the camera set to 'flowers' but it means it's only focusing sharply on certain areas and the back of the card is a bit fuzzy again, at least you get an idea of the many layers I have fixed with 1mm foam tape, so will squish down to post.

Here's a better picture taken head on.  As you can see, I have inked the embossed areas of my die cuts and around the edge of the smaller flower.  The background paper is a piece from my stash - thankfully I found something in yellow!  And for the list of Marianne Design dies I used:

cupcake - LR0160
lace edging - LR0161
lace mat in white - CR1201
yellow mat behind cup cake - LR0180
daisy flowers - LR0106
cut leaves - LR0156

I can enter the Marianne Design Divas challenge to create with lots of layers again, and of course Marianne Design products - I have lots of layers on my cupcake card!  And as promised, a better entry for the Totally Gorjuss theme of something sweet, my lemon cupcake.  Crafty Cardmakers would like to see a birthday creation as they are celebrating their 4th birthday - Happy Birthday! and seize the cake .. ..
