we all really appreciate your comments so if you find some time to spare please pop around to everyone :-)

For my card I just had to play with my new Silhouette Cameo machine and made a cupcake shaped card :-) ,, and it does stand up,,, but I wouldn’t place it in a draught ,,,, :-) The cupcake design is from the Silhouette online store and I copied, flipped and welded to make it foldable. I used Neenah Desert Storm paper for the cupcake base, I stamped this with a Hero Arts Cling Dots stamp and Hero Hues Latte Chalk Ink and then scored lines to create texture.I used Kaiser Crafts paper for the topping, I embossed this with a Sizzix Swirl folder and then glittered all the raised bits with pink glitter. I coloured the swirly icing yellow and added glitter ,, my goodness this is sparkly ,,, and then I glittered a Monarch butterfly too,, even the No 3 s glittered ,,, too much glitter ya think ??? nah ,,,, :-) I added some Brittania Card Candi , some pink/white stripe ribbon, a button from my stash and I finished with twine.

Thanks for looking :-) Dora and the DT have all made some gorgeous creations for you to see this week so please pop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them ! :-)
