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!

Sweet friend

The digi images I used are from the Pink Frosting download I bought from Nutcrafters. The challenge this fortnight on Nutty nutshells (a new challenge blog to me) is to find a sketch challenge from another blog and use an image stocked by Nutcrafter's - hence the girl and cupcake digis from Pink Frosting. I coloured them with copics and mounted the girl on the cupcake (after a bit of fiddly cutting out). The sentiment is also from the Pink Frosting digi sheet.

For my card I chose the sketch from My Grafico challenge 22:

It also uses the colours on this week's Color throwdown 66:

The papers are BG wisteria, a couple of sticky ribbons and the mat surrounding the image is from DCWV far east collection. The use of ribbon makes it suitable for La La land 10. And the cupcake is suitable for Die Cut Dreams 21: 'food and/or drink'.
