At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Sweet Treats.We have the fabulous Inky Impressions as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

I’ve gone a little colour crazy with Cupcakes & Candy Factory Background by Inky Impressions using Copic Ciao Markers,adding Liquid Pearls for texture on the icing.There’s so much amazing detail I just had to!I picked out the colours in these fabulous freebie papers.A strip of cotton lace has been attached to the under side of the triangular piece,to replicate the frilliness of the doilies,and I dug out these nice,shiny buttons.They look a bit like sweeties too 🙂 I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment,leaving it plain so it stood out from the patterned paper.I chose the cardstock as not only was it the perfect shade of minty green it also has a pretty shimmer to it  🙂

    A sweet, yummy looking card. Your coloring & use of liquid pearls make this a wonderful creation. The background cherry paper compliments the cherry on top. Like the buttons. Like the pastel colors. Thank you for entering the Doodle Pantry Aug Ch.
