Happy Birthday Mum :-)

It's not my Mum's birthday :-)

I made this card to enter the Stamp Something Challenge whose theme is 'Stamp Something for a Mum' I used Becky's fab sketch on the Sketch and Stash Challenge.My new thins are the checked paper, just bought that, and the flowers are new too :-) It also qualifies for the Pink Elephant Challenge whose theme is 'Circles and Scallops' :-)

The cupcake is from the Simon Says Clear Stamps Savour Sweet Cupcakes set. I coloured it with copics, then smothered the topping with glue and sprinkled coconut ( ivory flower soft) and glitter all over it :-)
The brown paper is fron a Funky Fairy's Papercrafts download, as is the sentiment, the papers are from the 'In With The Old' set and the sentiment is from the Birthday Rounds set :-) The checked paper is from the DCWV The Glitter Sweet stack. I also used stardream card for the base card and the deckle edged strip.
I used my nesties to cut the circles and scallop shapes, the top one was chalked with pink pearlescent chalk from Pebbles inc and then it was sprayed with green glimmer mist, it looks yummy in real life :-)
The flower was a birthday gift from Heidi from the Simon Says Stamp Store (thanks darlin :-)). The sentiment is mounted in a SU hodgepodge hardware frame.
I also cut a corner swirl on my cricut and finished the whole thing off with some choccy drops that were in blog candy that I won in January :-)

Think thats all,,, :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one x x
Also you only have a couple of days left to enter my blog candy so have a look :-) It's at the top of my blog :-)
