Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 74

This is my design card for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 74: anything goes with a twist ... use pastel colours. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in our challenge.

For my card I used Bugaboo Stamps AKV too Wedding - cut cake (Bugaboo are sponsoring the challenge), colouring digitally using Microsoft Paint. For the background I used the left hand corner of a 12 x 12 paper by Carol Wilson that I've treasured for years - this is actually pastel pink with white embossing, although in the photo it looks white. The piece of paper backing the image is from Hot off the Press Jacie's vintage papers (I've had this book of papers for longer than I care to remember).
