Yummy inspiration

Hello hope you are well - we are having a very busy week with Issac off school for half term and hubby on holiday for the week.

The boys went fishing yesterday and we spent today on the beach, tomorrow we are off to the zoo and on Friday I'm taking the boys to Framlingham castle {Issac has been learning about castles at school and I just know that they will LOVE it !}
Needless to say that there is not a great deal of time for crafting this week as I am exhausted by the time my bum hit's the sofa in the evening !!

But I do have a Cooking it up with Katie DT card to share with you. Our recipe this week is a romantic one. Here are the ingredients you'll need to include;

Make it romantic
add some embossing
and some ribbon

This week our fabulous sponsor is designed to delight and the DT got to choose our own images to play with this week. I went for this gorgeous cupcake - who can resist a yummy cupcake - not me ! The sentiment is also from designed to delight.

Here is the picture that inspired me to use tyhese colours - a gorgeous necklace from The romantic garden - O how I love this necklace you can see it on etsy here

I coloured my image with promarkers and added some blinging glitter glue to the sprinkles then shadow cut it.

My embossing is subtle but it's there and was created using my sizzix texture plates and bigshot, then inked up with first white then pale pink ink.

The scalloped ribbon is velvet and soooooo touchable - I love a tactile element on a card.
The paper is from a Brenda Pinnick kit which just seems to go on forever, I love the colours and they matched the cupcake so perfectly !

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Crafts & me - Punch it out (butterfly punch)
I {heart} promarkers - Sparkly bling
Bows n berries - colour challenge {pink, turquoise and yellow}
Crafty cardmakers - something for someone you love

Thanks for visiting me today - I hope you enjoy the rest of your week x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

Hey Suzie, I love your cupcake! It's making me wish I had one to bite into.
Thanks for playing with us at Cupcake Inspirations.
PS - the wedding was fun, it was outdoors at their house, they live out in the country. My laptop died so I haven't done anything with the wedding photos yet. I have to think out what I'm going to do with them and how. I'll have to post something soon.
