Cupcakes and loads of embellishments


I'm back as promised with my second card for today.  This is my favourite sort of card to make and I've really enjoyed playing with this today. The image is of course Whiff of Joy. I love these older stamps and haven't used them for far too long. The papers are my new Me to You ones. Told you that you would be seeing a lot of them as they are such soft pretty colours.  The 2 different swirls are Sizzix dies. Flowers are Wild Orchid.

Challenges:

I'm loving those papers too Marianne - I have a 12x12 pad of them here, but I can't break into them as I'm keeping them in case I get over 100 entries for my candy

Your card is absultely adorable marianne and the colours absolutely perfect for the image.

You have linked it up to Stampalot challenge, but can't see us mentioned in your post, but in any event you have combined more challenges than our rules allow.

Hope you can join in with something else.
