New Challenge...it's Truly Scrumptious!

There's a fab new challenge blog that launched yesterday called Truly Scrumptious, and they've got a great sketch for their first challenge, with some gorgeous creations by the DT too. I've used it to make a birthday card using one of my favourite Penny Black images (from the 'Critter Party' set). I've gone spotty dotty mad, with my Papermania papers (from the 'Sweet Nothings' pack), and 'Swiss Dots' embossing on the blue strip. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts 'Cupcakes' set, the flowers are from Poppicrafts, the brads are also by Papermania, and the multicoloured ribbon was part of a birthday gift from my lovely friend Pauline.
