Bright and cheery cupcakes

It's been a hot, tiring day, not that I'm complaining about the heat, but we had to go up to London to Guy's for John's appointment and the trains were a bit delayed coming back and it was hot standing waiting on London Bridge Station.

So I've just had a bit of relaxing crafting - easy peasy sort - using some of the cupcake kit I bought a while ago from QVC - I was attracted to it because it had cupcake stamps as well as card and die cuts, but so far I haven't even had the stamps out of the wrapper because I've been using the rest of the kit - comes in handy to make a quick card.

I used the sketch for challenge 72 on Flourishes Timeless:


The above is a scan, which doesn't show the irridescent sparkle of the stardream black card - this photo shows it a bit - so difficult with a flash photo. The edges of the scalloped oval and the little sentiment are glittered.

This is also for::

Anything goes 4: 'cupcakes and colours: bright'
Cards & things colour challenge 37: 'kraft, pink passion, basic black'
Crafty creations 73: 'we want to see you shine' - stardream card and glitter
Oh Alice 19: 'twinkle, twinkle' - twinkling, glittery or sparkly

What's going on? update

Having shown my workspace yesterday for Order of the Opus Gluei challenge 61 - you can see it here - I've now cleared up this morning and this is what it looks like now:





No crafting yet today - had to go to the GP surgery this morning and this afternoon we're off to Guy's for an appointment for John, but I expect there might be some crafting this evening, so the workspace won't be staying like this for long.
