cupcakes and tea….:)

lily of the vally especially for you
ooooh what i would give to have a cupcake with frosting on the top….mmmmmmmmmm delish.
My card today used one of the delish LOTV images, coloured with copic markers. I was tempted to add a butterfly to the card and enter it into this weeks lilli of the valley challenge .. things with wings , but thought that would be cheating... lol.

lily of the vally especially for you
a different colour palette for me today, and have gone with some brighter tones. Smile
The image that i have used is called Time for a cuppa,  i topped the cupcake with some liquid applique and heat embossed it to make it all fluffy looking..  I think----  in fact i am certain that the sentiment is LOTV also.
the papers that i used for this card are what i found.. yes found in one of my hidy holes un-used… in fact to be honest.. i forgot that i had them.. Embarrassed smile any way these are from a DCWV paper stack called Nana’s kitchen ..
The scallop doily die is a die-namics die. and the cupcake is quickutz, i popped some more liquid applique on it and then added a button for the cherry..
to finish off i added some lace… from stash and some organza ribbon..
which i plaited. (can’t spell)
Thanks for taking time out to visit me today, much appreciated..
