Mmm... cupcakes anyone?

I'm blogging a second card today because it's for a challenge that finishes tomorrow, please scroll down for the Corrosive Challenge DT card.

Belles'n'Whistles has a monochromatic challenge this week and I really liked using the soft colours on this stamp.  The colourscheme is brown which includes peach shades if you look at the colour wheel.  I've based my card on Papertake Weekly's sketch and I've added stitching around the image and the dark brown pearlescent card which is this week's teme on the Paper Sundaes Challenge.

Image coloured with Copics and is matted onto toffee coloured pearlescent card, cut out with a scalloped Nestie.  The peachy DP is Basic Grey from the Capella pad with a bit of Distress Ink sponged on and MS doily lace punch used on one side.  The main DP is Basic Grey from the Nook & Pantry set, again keeping up the doily lace theme which fits the cupcakes that I reckon she's baking:).  I made the roses with my Steve's Flowers die from Little Claire and sprayed them with some Glimmer Mist.
