All dressed up challenge

Hi everyone

It's time again for another challenge over at All Dressed Up.  This time I used a cute cupcake design by Wendy.  I brought some fab stamps about birthdays and cakes and remembered I hadn't got any cake digi's, then I found this one in the store at Esty here.

I actually made two different cards with the one stamp, just to show how one image can be used in very different ways!

This first one was using some pink petticoat papers that I distressed and inked before matting onto black card.  I used bright watercolour pens to paint the image.  Finished with some silky crush ribbon for the bow and some flowers from my stash for the arrangement.  The sentiments (both outside and inside) are from a 'my favourite things' set I brought from a Facebook seller

I'd like to enter this into:
Crafting with Friends - anything goes
Creative fingers - anything goes
QKR stampede - yummy yummy
Reasonable ribbon - anything goes with ribbon
Your next stamp - colour combo

This second card is using papers from an old paper pad.  I made an easel base and matted and layered papers with dark brown card.  The cakes were coloured with distress inks and then covered with clear glitter.

Finished with pink cosmic shimmer pearl drops and some bakers twine.  Again the sentiment is from 'my favourite things' set.

I'd like to enter this one into:
Crafting with friends - anything goes
Creative fingers - anything goes

I hope you like them both!

I look forward to seeing what you make and hope you enter our challenge - oh and if you want more inspiration check out the blog, Facebook or Pinterest.  Our Facebook challenge is currently hearts if you want to combine for a greater chance of winning.  All we ask for all our challenges, is that you use an All Dressed up image (and there's freebies here if you haven't got one!) and you get the chance to win three of the fabulous images!
