Let There Be Cake!

 Cute Card Thursday Challenge - We Love Cake!

What another glorious day here in the south of England! Too hot for my cats who have been either in a shady spot in the garden (read in the overgrown grass) or indoors in a cool corner behind the tv. My youngest seems intent to sleep out the day and then venture outside when it gets cooler in the evening. Don't blame her - being black she overheats really quickly and doesn't like the heat one bit.

So - back to card making! Today I put my thinking cap on. Have a few birthdays coming up and also have some inspired blog challenges I wanted to enter so I have come up with the following. It's mostly inspired by one of my favourite things to eat - CAKE! I recently bought some lovely cupcake themed papers, brads, and stamps, but it didn't sit right so I had a think and came up with this cute topper inherited by a lovely friend. I wanted to get it bright and summery and so used a variety of papers and matched the colours when colouring the images with my Promarkers.

And here it is - very cute and quirky I think. Instead of using 3d foam pads or matting the sentiment, I used one of the lovely oversized brads I received in my pack to attach it.

I'd like to enter this card into the following blogs::
