Pretty cupcakes

Hello lovely people,

It was another lovely day yesterday so Dr. Hubby and I enjoyed a walk in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside.  I did miss all the gorgeous rolling green hills and woodlands while I was away; you can't beat it IMHO.

The only downside was that we both acquired a tick while out and about (note to self: stop wearing shorts no matter how hot it is!) but I managed to remove them safely with tweezers - phew!

Ok, let's move on to something a little nicer...

It's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and for this challenge we have an inspiration photo;

Aren't these just gorgeous...almost too gorgeous to eat!
You can use any element from this photo such as cake, bows, pearls, flowers.
Don't forget we want to see more pink than any other colour!

Our fabulous sponsor this time is The Ribbon Girl with a £10 voucher
I took this theme very literally and made a cupcake shaped card!

In keeping with the inspiration photo I added a topping of plenty of flowers and pearls!

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Super card Kat! Almost good enough to eat!

Absolutely gorgeous cupcake Kat... such a fab way of going with the theme... the lovely flowers are a perfect embellishment with the pearls too!

Hope your ticks don't cause any further problems - I saw something on TV about Lyme Disease last week... caused sometimes by those little creatures if they're infected..... so make sure you get it checked out!

Big hugs

Love this fabulous card Kat - such a great design and pretty detailing.
Hope you and hubby are both ok after your 'tick' experience!!!
Thankfully me and my DH have never had that happen on our walks.
Have a wonderful day.

What a pretty card, love the shape and all the pretty flowers !
Ugh the thought of ticks bring me out in a cold sweat, I remember our cat came home once from one of his adventures with a huge one burrowed in his neck, was a nightmare to remove as well.
Hugs, Kaz x

hmmm not thinking about the tick incident - they give me the heebeegeebees!

Your card is beautiful Kat. The shape is such a clever design idea and you have put everything together perfectly. The papers are divine and your flower cluster is gorgeous. I am also very taken with that little tag die - gorgeousness.

Ooh that is so clever and so gorgeous! Bet this will be a huge hit, the papers alone are utterly delish! Love that clever card shape, did you use a template? Or have you one of those snazzy shiny machines?! Brilliant take on the theme hun. Hugs, Wends x
