Cupcakes!!


















Now that I have finished the invitations I have had time to make a card for Jenny's challenge over at the Wee Memories blog "Sweet Treats with Ribbons". The challenge is sponsored by May Arts ribbons.  They have some really lovely ribbons in their store.

I wanted my card to look like a table with the cupcakes on, the background "tablecloth" is stamped with the Lace Background stamp from Hero Arts and the doily is created with the Starburst Lace stamp which has been embossed in white and the rubbed with Worn Lipstick distress ink.  The ruffle gingham ribbon is from May Arts and I found it in the UK here .
The cupcakes are a digital image from Squigglefly, I have coloured them with copic markers then added Glossy Accents to the cherries and Perfect Pearls and Glitter to highlight the cupcakes.

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps, S5341 Lace Background, S5317 Starburst Lace. Distress Inks, Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick. Cupcake image, Squigglefly.




















Just had to show you a photograph of these amazing peppers and chilli's that my neighbour gave to me yesterday, he grows them in the green house where he works, lots of varieties here and such lovely bright colours.  I just need to decide what to cook with them.  Apparently I have to be careful with the orange ones as they are very hot!!
