Kawaii cupcake

The theme on Daring Cardmakers this week is 'so kawaii'. Originally I was going to use a picture of some kawaii cupcakes I found on the internet, but I thought that was a bit of a cheat, so I decided to adapt a cupake. I was going to stamp one, but remembered that I still have quite a bit left from a Dawn Bibby kit I bought in a moment of weakness (yes, another moment - lol!) so I just doodled a kawaii face on the cupcake and the cherry. The cherry and 'make a wish' papers are matted on to deep cherry foiled card. The scalloped circle with the cupcake is matted on to a Nellie die cut with the foiled card. A couple of Poundland gems finish the card.

There's lots of glitter on the top of the cupcake and on the scalloped edges of the dotted mat.

I used the sketch for My time made easy 22:

Wishing you a purr-fect birthday

This is for the sketch for I love Promarkers 78:

And the colours are for Cat's corner 56: brown and pink. Also this week's There's magic in the air Magical Monday challenge is 'pink, white and brown.

I've used a favourite Ladybug Magnum stamp, so I'm also entering this into Ladybug 36: favourite stamp.

I used one of my favourite nesties and distressed with tattered rose DI. The Magnum image was stamped with memento rich cocoa and coloured with Promarkers, also using the blender pen. The flower is recycled from another card.

The papers are all from my scraps box, even the large piece covering the card blank, so this is good for City crafter 70: scrap happy and Jules crafty snippet challenge 32.

Sorry that you can't see the sentiment that well on here - it says: wishing you a purr-fact birthday!
