A truly scrumptious card?? d'oh!!

This card is for the sketch on Truly Scrumptious challenge 19:

I've just realised that I did the card for the sketch, but forgot that there was a recipe that went with it - d'oh! Oh well, I still give credit for the lovely sketch and will try to do another card that incorporates the recipe as well.

I've used the colours purple, cerise and gold, which are those given for challenge 23 on My Grafico.

Funky Fairys challenge 40 is 'touchy feely' - to use texture on a card, so I embossed with d'vine swirls cuttlebug folder and one of the birthday sentiments - and also the flowers are 'feely'. I used one of the freebie Funky Fairy downloads 'birds', changing the colour and turning one of the birds to face the other, which I thought would be OK for Gingham Girl's 'word of the week' 10: 'chinwag' - I thought that these two birds must be having a tweeting chat.

Today's challenge on 365 cards (day 248) is :Imagine this: 'feathers' - well, birds have feathers, so I think this is OK for that.

I used 'nesties' for the scalloped circles and embossed sentiment, so I'm linking for Die Cuts R us 14: 'nest something'. And digital Tuesday 31 calls for the use of flowers as well as a digi element, which are both here. Bee Crafty 16 also calls for the use of a digi image and also 'distressing' - plenty of sanding of embossing here. And the scallops are right for My time to craft 84: 'so many scallops!'

No backing patterned papers have been used on this card, just textured cardstock that's been sanded, so this is another one for Charisma Cardz 43: ''no backing papers'.

Also: Mixed Media Monday: 'opposites attract' - well, the birds are standing opposite one another!
