Food and Drink at CCT

This week our theme on the Cute Card Thursday blog is food and drink - both or just one or the other. 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 DT have created.

Well, I've gone for food, cake to be precise and made by the LOTV cute little mice.

I've coloured my stamped image with Copic pens and added touches of sparkle to the icing sugar with Stickles.  Here's the card:

The base was already in my started to make box .. .. .. a piece of pretty Nitwits paper I had inked the edges and stuck onto a plain white base, and that's as far as I'd got.  So that was the determining colour for my image and after rummaging in the bit box I found a couple other small pieces of Nitwits that matched so inked and layered them up too.  I also had an off cut of a pretty Marianne Design oval doily so popped that in behind the image that I cut out with the MD fancy square.  It was looking a bit plain, so I decided to add some faux stitching with a fine marker pen, then rummaged about and found ribbon to match so stuck that down, tied a bow and added the row of flat backed pearl string.

To get flowers to match I simply die cut them from white card then coloured with the darkest pink Copic marker I'd used in the image, and added the stitching.  To finish off I die cut and inked leaves and a swirl from the beige paper design and dusted areas with more Stickles - not showing up in the picture but quite sparkly in real life and the ribbon has a soft sparkle too.

Marianne Dies I used:
little bit of oval doily CR1204
square to cut image from LR0310
flowers in set LR0112
leaves in set LR0117
swirl in set LR0116

The challenge on the Sweet Stampin' blog is to use dies and/or punches along with some stamping, so I can enter my card with them.  On the Alphabet Challenge blog the theme is 'S' for sweet treats, oh yeh, cake! And at Incy Wincy blog it's anything goes so I'll enter with them too.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will come back again soon.
