Eat Cake!

Another of my Saturated Canary digis, coloured with Promarkers. I had fun doing this card using the brightest colours. The dots on her headscarf were coloured with a silver metallic Promarker and I added diamond Stickles to the cake. I used orange silk to stitch the threads of the bunting on the image. I cut the image with a Spellbinders grand circle nestie and matted it on to a scalloped nestie.The pink card is from Papermill and the glittery backing paper is from First Editions pad 'Desert Blooms'. I cut the backing paper with a grand scalloped square nestie and matted it on the pink card. The corners of the pink card were cut with my Carl corner rounder punch. I used my Whimsy bunting die on three pieces of coloured card to make the four triangles and then added a heart and star embellishment to two of them to match the bunting image on the digi. I tied them with orange silk and added two to each of the top corners. I had a cupcake stamp which I'd got free quite a while ago in my Creative Stamping magazine. I stamped three cupcakes and coloured them with Promarkers and Stickles before carefully cutting out. These were aded to the bottom of the card and were raised to give more depth to the design. The card blank is by Craft UK.

Thanks for all your lovely comments. I hope all the UK bloggers enjoyed the weekend festivities. We're back in to the normal routine again now. Eric has been not too good and we had to visit the GP this morning. He was sent for an xray at the Cardio unit of a local hospital and we were in and out in ten minutes! Perfect. I'm not doing any housework today because we've been in and out, and in and out again, so I've decided there's been enough rushing about and I'll play for the rest of the day. Enjoy your day.
