In the last week or so since my last post I have made a couple of cards - 18th birthday, wedding and birthday, which I will add here later. In the meantime here is a card I started earlier this week and wasn't quite sure what to do with to make it better. A friend of mine is hosting a challenge on scrappers delight http://scrapersdelight.blogspot.com/2010/08/sweet-as-candy.html and this card fits what they're looking for so I'm going to try and link it (this could take a while!!) Anyway, here it is...
It fits the challenge on both counts
1) it features cakes in both the paper and the topper
2) it is made using stash in chocolate and caramel colours
The cupcakes paper is from a Dovecrafts stack; the ribbon is Anita's spotted ribbon in Cream; the embossed paper is Black Magic Coredinations run through my new Sizzix Texture Boutique (I HAD to get it - it was only£17 in the QVC shop and I find I only really use my Big Shot for die cutting, particularly Nesties! and not for embossing, have done more embossing in the 2 weeks since I bought it than I've done all year I think!!) and sanded, with glitter glue added randomly to some of the dots; the cake itself is from a cardmaking kit my mum bought me a few years ago and the brad is from my general stash!
It's something a bit different to my usual cards so perhaps that's why I'm not so sure about it!
