Cuppy Cakes!

Good evening everyone!
Ok I felt like doing a little colouring this afternoon, in between doing my Biggest Loser workout and picking Keiran up from nursery. Oh and it was a great workout today's a really great game for X-Box Kinect if you're looking to get fit. I have only been doing it for a week and I haven't stopped aching yet! (in a good way!)

Anyway, as I was saying...colouring. So I've been visiting Dunelm Mill and checking out this season's very bright kitchen colours and so they inspired the colours for this card...

The stamp is a Lili of The Valley one, 'Mix It & Make It' cute?? Anyway, I coloured it with Promarkers and then I cut off the bottom of the image and mounted it onto some blue Gingham paper from my stash to make it look like a table cloth. I saw it on Lesley's blog and thought it looked fab, so I thought I'd give it a go too! I rather quite like it! I then made a background paper with a mini cupcake stamp and added the Birthday Recipe and the bunting, made using a Molly Blooms stamp free from Simply Homemade a while ago. I finished with some plain glitter on the flour and some glossy accents on the egg.

Oops I seemed to have waffled rather a lot tonight, sorry! Hope you like the card anyway! :)
