Sketch & Stash Challenge #4

The new challenge over on the Sketch and Stash challenge blog is a real toughie. I found it really difficult to decide what to do, and to find two suitable images, and in the end settled for 'Henry - Celebrating Mouse' by Whiff of Joy, and one of the stamps from the 'Cupcakes' set by Hero Arts, with a candle added in the top to try to make it look the same as Henry's cupcake, on a square gatefold card. The sentiment stamp is from the same Hero Arts set, and although I chose to use 'yum!' rather than 'seize the cupcake!' (which really would have been perfect, but it was too big!), I still had to put the sentiment lower down on the card, so as not to cover any of the images. My 'new' item is the stripey paper (Blush - 'Boyfriend' by BasicGrey). I think that the flowers are from Sarah's Cards Ltd, and the brads are by Papermania.
