Just whipped this up to say...

Good morning, everyone and a Happy Sunday to you all!  We're hoping to have a relaxing day today and hopefully the sun will pop his head out now and again! 
I have another card made using one of the images from my new disc...
...I wanted this to look quite 'British Bake Off'-ish?!  I embossed the white background with Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls folder to look like whipped cream and disguised the join with a piece of red polka dot ribbon (my last piece!)...
...I printed the .png mixer digistamp using Windows Photo Viewer at Wallet size (9 to a page) - twice onto white colouring paper and once onto the red printed paper from the bbq design set.  I shaded the coloured version with Ruby, Crimson and Blender Promarkers then paper pieced over my coloured base image.  I coloured the bowl and knobs on the second digistamp and decoupaged over the top...
 ...I made some bunting and punched flowers from the Telephone flower and Lamp rose papers, inking the edges with Walnut Stain DI and adding pearl centres to the flowers.  A couple of pearly pins, dinky bow and fun sentiment - 'Just whipped this up to say...' and I was finished.  I haven't done anything with the inside yet as I don't know wether to decorate it or add an insert - we'll see, but it will complete the sentiment by reading...'Happy Birthday!'  Hope you like my pretty, culinary creation and I'll be back to share some more craftiness soon!

Love this card Lisa, really does have the feel of the 'British Bake off'! Great way to show all the papers in your CD too and how to mix and match them!
Hope you had a lovely crafting weekend,
Hugs, Karen xx
