Late, Early, Always Time For Cupcakes

Hello.  Welcome.  The mojo is with me.  Just need to find the time!  Can you believe it's July already??  Happy Independence Day to my US friends.  Hope you are partying.  Bigtime. 

Over at Joan's Touch Joan wants to see pink, green and white, a circle and flowers.  Yesterday I had a mail from my sister which included a pack of 80's Glam Sharpies.  One was called Jellie Pink and I thought that would be a fun colour for hair.  Last weeks challenge at The Greeting Farm was to case a designer and I liked this card by Marcy but got all discombobulated with time zones and well, time in general.  But it's a cute card so I decided to use it as a sketch.

I used a white card that came with hearts embossed on it.   Sorry about the shadow on the photo.  The glossy silver outlined flowers were giving me glare problems.  I cut a round aperture using Sizzix circle die and backed it with paper from Docrafts Shop til you Drop range.  Double Cupcake Anya from The Greeting Farm was stamped and coloured with Sharpies.  I also added Wink of Stella to the butterfly and cupcake frosting but I don't think that's showing.  The flowers are Papermania stickers from the Fun Cats sheet

I cut the corners using shaped scissors and added a ribbon and another of the flower stickers.  The aperture has been tinted with VersaMagic Pink Petunia and Perfect Plumeria and I added 3 green rhinestones to the butterfly
