You Can Never Have Too Many Cupcakes

I decided to make my card for my sister using my new goodies Lili of the Valley stamp and Marianne die.  At first the stamp was driving me mad because I couldn’t seem to get a complete image, first it was the middle missing and then the bottom.  I seem to have trouble with new stamps, I think it does need that stamping out a few times before it seems to work – or is that just me being bad at stamping.  

Finally had a good image, I went for pastel shades and pink papers because I have a complete 12 x 12 pad of pink called Rose Colored Glasses from G.C.D. Studios.

Small heart charm came from one of those sets you see for about £1.50, I think this was from the Works about 18 months ago.  I remember buying several just for the charms and ribbon.

I used Ranger Glossy Accents to highlight the cherries, you can just about see it on this picture, but trust me it's there.  The whole image was coloured in using the usual Promarkers.
For the card I used:
Rose Colored Glasses card from G.C.D. Studios
Dark Pink card from Papermill
Lili of the Valley stamp
Marianne die
Kars pearl gems
Small heart charm
