Chocolate and Strawberry Buns :-)

I remember a time when cupcakes were called buns ! Does that show my age lol !! :-)

I made this card following the fabulous sketch by Hazel on the brand new 'Moving Along With The Times ' Challenge




As it's now time for the Wimbledon tennis tournament they have also asked for strawberries and cream with a hint of chocolate colour scheme :-)



I made this card using the Simon Says Clear Stamps SAVOR SWEET CUPCAKES Exclusive

I coloured the cupcakes with prisma pencils and copic pens. I added glitter and ivory flower soft 'coconut' topping :-) the sentiment is in the same set.

The papers are DCWV Cupcake stack. I used some prima flowers and a doodlebug sugar coated brad.

I am also entering this for the Charisma Cardz Challenge who have an open theme this week in celebration of being awarded Rubbernecker UK shipping :-)

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
