Good morning on this fine and frosty morning!
It's time for the February challenge over at Lily-Bootoo and this month we have a little card recipe for you to follow.
1 ribbon
1 tag
That's all you need to incorporate within your card design to enter!
For my card I used yummy cupcake from Collection6 Celebrations there are 6 gorgeous yummy cake and other images created by Sam in this collection and for only £1.99 which you can see at LIly-Boos Boutique, they are so versatile!
My card is 5x7" and the background paper is Pink Petticoat download. I printed the cupacke out once for the base and three times more on patterned Pink Petticoat papers so I could paper piece and layer. The cupcake case layer is pop dotted one layer and the frosting is pop dotted 2 layers. On the second layer of the frosting I made a cut down the middle and this is where I placed the real birthday candle so that the top layer when pop dotted lay flush over the top (hope this makes sense!) The image is layered on to silver adhesive glitter paper and silver glitter added to the stars on the frosting. I added some black and white polka dotted ribbon and a little tag in keeping with the challenge recipe. The sentiment and tag are computer generated font is Cheri.
I do hope you can join us at Lily-Bootoo this month we love to see your gorgeous creations and the winner can choose 2 of Lily-boos collections as their prize!
Have a great week everyone!
