WOW!!! These colours were certainly a challenge for me this week, but I thought I would still play along after my big TOP PICK last week. Thanks to the girls over at JAI for the challenge this week.... I just about did my head in!!!LOL I should have been carted off in a padded van for the amount of attempts at this one. This is a variation on a card from some time ago but as Crazy for Cupcakes was about the only stamp set I hadn't used thought I would mix it up a bit. Next time I think I will just put the ink down and step away from the table!!!
Anyhoo I hope you like it even though I'm not 100%, but we are our own worst critics at times.

STAMP SETS : Crazy for Cupcakes & Baroque Motif
CARDSTOCK : As per challenge except Ruby Red substituted with Riding Hood Red as none in my stash.
INK : As above & Stazon
PUNCHES : Scallop Edge
RIBBON : Riding Hood Red Stripe
MISC : Stampin Dimensionals, Crystal Effects & Dazzling Diamonds
Thanks for popping in and I love reading your comments
Have a great day

Oooh, I LOVE this, Anne!! The flourish is fantastic, and I love the colours of the icing (how you've layered them), and just the touch of Soft Suede. It's GREAT!!

I love how you've used the Baroque Motifs flourish! It works so well like that. Thanks for playing!

I'm glad you didn't let it beat you!! Love the sparkly cakes- even if they are pink LOL

I think cupcakes are perfect for this colour combo. Your card is very sweet! Love all the glitter on the cakes and the flourish in the background.

They are my favourites Anne, but when you need to step away from the table, you should put your shoes on and run!

Has anyone told Miss PT that we all need balance in our life!!! Time out to do this is good for the mind. LOL! Sorry Rach!!! That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
You and all this pink, Annie..what's goin' on????? I love the little peek of Soft Suede to "balance" it down. I agree, the flourish is a nice touch.
