Cute Card Thursday meets Friday Sketchers


This is the first time I've made a card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge blog, but as the theme this week was food...how could I resist! I've combined it with the fab sketch this week by Kristine over on Friday Sketchers.

For my main image I've used a Penny Black stamp from the T for Transparent set 'Party Critters'. The other cupcakes and the sentiment stamp are from the 'Cupcake' Clear Design set by Hero Arts. All images were coloured with watercolour pencils, with the frosting on the cupcakes highlighted with glitter glue, and mounted using Nestabilities. The papers are by DCWV ('Christmas Stack'), and I've used faux-stitching to create borders around the different designs, and behind the three smaller images.

I've just seen that I've been tagged by Pauline ...need to have a think before I post my answers...

Gorgeous! Totally yummy! I nearly used this stamp myself for CCT but swerved it at the last minute and used a mouse in a box of chocs instead ;-) Love those little cupcakes though!
