Magnolia Down Under Challenge #8 - Cupcakes


I must admit that this card is NOT one of my favourites. I was trying out a different brand of watercolour paper - and poor Tilda has ended up looking all stripey :( It's not as obvious IRL thank goodness - but the camera seems to have picked up every lump and bump in the paper, and I ran out of time to re-do her. It was a good lesson to learn - not all papers are the same quality!!!

Luckily my SU order arrived in time for me to use the Crazy for Cupcakes set, and I was VERY tempted to mask off the top cake on the stack as though Tilda had just pinched it! Maybe next time!

I'm looking forward to seeing some fabulous entries over at MDUC.

Well, I think this turned out pretty darn cute, Debbie! I just love the layout for this card and the yummy glittery cupcake tops. It really would be cute to mask off that top cupcake. What a great idea.

I think I'm going to grab the top cupcake as they look so YUMMY! Such a cute layout and the watercolor paper looks nice... I can see faint lines, and Tilda is ADORABLE!! Love the sentiment.. Chat more soon! Michelle :)

I didn't even notice the paper texture until you pointed it out... and it doesn't in the least distract from this cutie! I love that image, and she's perfect with the cupcakes from SU. Your colors are yummy. I also love those flowers! It's all good, as usual!

Hugs and love to you,
Lisa

Don't worry about the paper texture - it's not obvious until you point it out and anyway, it's the overall look of the card that counts.
Your card is lovely with the embossing, beautiful flowers and the frame around the greeting and Tilda looks as yummy as the cakes!
