Recycled cupcake

The cupcake I've used on this card was cut out from a leaflet that came through the post today - too good to just put in the paper bin.

The offcut of We R Memory Keepers paper was already out on the work surface, so I used that with a couple of sentiment strips. The cake had some silver balls on it so I put some golden gems over them to match up with the golden foiling on the sentiment strips.

Colours are for Color throwdown 203:

This is for:
