A Quick Cupcake Card...


Yesterday was another good day weatherwise.  We had a few things to do in the morning but after lunch we headed East to the coastal village of Findhorn on the Moray Firth which has a lovely beach.  Iona was rather disappointed that all the beaches we saw around Ullapool the previous day were stoney rather than sandy so I thought it would make her day.  I wasn't wrong and she had a whale of a time as you can see!  We obviously had the best of the weather as when we came home you could see it had been raining.

Todays card is a quick one I made a week or so ago for a birthday, I didn't so much forget about it but it crept up on me quicker than expected if that makes sense. 

The topper and sentiment are by Kanban and are from a sale bargain set I picked up in my local craft shop.  I have matched the colours and spots in the photo to the papers which are all Me To You Spring Chic.  These have been layered with gold textured cardstock, again to match up with the topper.  I've finished off the card with a big bloomer from the Papermania Parkstone Pink Capsule Collection topped with a heart-shaped button, some spotty organza ribbon, capsule collection buttons and various gems and pearls.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafting By Designs Challenge – Anything Goes
Creative Corner Challenges – Eat, drink and be merry!
The Paper Shelter Challenge - #124 Use that ribbon!
Sister Act Challenge - #19 Anything Goes
