Truly Scrumptious Challenge #5

This week at Truly Scrumptious we are delighted to be sponsored by The Cutting Cafe. The owner, Regina, has an amazing choice of digital images and templates available and was extremely generous in giving the Truly Scrumptious Design Team a complete set to play with for this challenge. The winner of this challenge will win not one but THREE complete sets!! How awesome is that!!

We have another sketch for you to work with this week with the additional challenge of make a card that is truly scrumptious and good enough to eat! Remember to follow the sketch and the theme to be in with a chance of winning this weeks fantastic prize.


I used bazzill swiss dots as my basic cardstock along with Basic Grey's Granola papers.
I mixed modelling paste with Ranger distress inks to get the chocolate colour for the icing - the downside to this...it took forever to dry. Too much icing? - probably.
My silly head took over at this point and the WOJ Henry the party mouse - ( just look at that expression on his face) crept in to run off with one of the cupcakes.
Last week the Gorjuss girls' cat kept creeping into my cards. I finished it with a candle (eek! only had pink ones - fortunately I'd colour Henry's ears pink) and one of the Cutting Cafe circlar sentiments cut with round nestabilities.

Materials
BC Bazzill swiss dots : DP - Basic Grey Granola : Cupcake Image & Sentiment - The Cutting Cafe : WOJ image Henry the Party Mouse : Copics : Round Nestabilities : rest from stash
