Cupcake Cutie!

Yayyy! It Tuesday and time for a new Totally Ladybugs Tuesday Challenge at Ladybugs Crafts Ink! It's the turn of lovely Lyndsey to host this challenge and, being a kind and generous person, she has picked the theme of 'Birthdays'.... how easy is that!!!
I made a scalloped rocker card... the scalloped bits are all hand cut  as I don't have any dies that shape big enough (or any dies of any shape big enough....!) The cute digital image is of course from LCI, she's one of the 'Cupcake Cuties' and you can buy her here for just £1.75. I printed the image twice then cropped and enlarged one of them to make the big cupcake she is standing on. The large cake case was paperpieced, the rest coloured with copics and topped with glitter! Papers are LOTV. The card DOES stand up but it was windy in the garden and after retrieving it twice (the second time the 'jaws of death' aka Mathilda almost beat me to it!) I gave up and photographed it lying down (the card not me!).

Well, that's it from me. I hope you will take the time to visit the Challenge Blog and see what the Lovely Ladybugs have been up to! We'd love to see your Birthday Cards too!
Thanks for visiting.
