Triple Challenge Henry

I've combined three challenges on this card: Secret Crafter (Shaped Cards); Creative Card Crew (Round & Round); and The Cuttlebug Spot (Take the Cake). I used the largest scalloped circle Nestie to make my card blank...I just love making these little cards...so I knew straight away that this was what I was going to do for the Secret Crafter DT Call. I used watercolour pencils to colour 'Henry - Celebrating Mouse' (by Whiff of Joy), adding some glitter glue to the icing on his cupcake. The pink card (it really is pink, although it's come out looking purple in the photo) was embossed with the 'Swiss Dots' Cuttlebug folder. To finish it off, I punched a couple of holes at the top and tied a bow with grosgrain ribbon (from Poppicrafts).
