Cake and bunting - time to celebrate

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments and support on yesterday's post. I was able to enjoy making some cards for myself rather than feeling the pressure of making cards to send away. I really loved making this one using one of the gorgeous Sugar Nellie fairies. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and I used a Sakura Rosestar pen for a bit of sparkle. The papers are the new Lucy Cromwell ones again. The cupcakes and bunting were just perfect for the look I had in mind. I used an EK border punch, Nestie for the image and used the scalloped circle Nesties to make the bunting. A couple of Memory Box die cut butterflies to finish it off.
