Jazzing it up continues

Last October I made some easy-peasy concertina cards from a Dena kit - you can see the original post here.

Some of them have sold, but some were still in my boxes and I felt that they had had their day and needed to be cut up and used in a different way - to give me a few extra cards for selling tomorrow (summer fair at mum's sheltered accommodation). One of the problems of the original cards is that they didn't stand up very well - some of them needed struts at the back.

Firstly, I've altered the cupcakes card that you can see in the middle of the original picture:

So I made two very simple cards from the original one - the cupcakes on the left of the second one are decoupaged. I added fresh backgrounds that were also from the Dena range:

I'm linking these for:

Stampin' royalty 22
: 'jazz it up!'
Town scrapper: 'save a tree' - both cards were made with the re-used 'scraps' from the original cards
Challenge up your life 21: 'recycling'
Corrosive 66: 'what's cookin??'
Cupcake 93: 'summer delights'
Ooh-la-la 55: 'use the colours of the challenge blog' - particularly the first card
Flourishes timeless 69: 'one layer card' - the first card because the second one has decoupage
No time to stamp? 142: 'sweet stuff'
