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 ūüôā 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 ¬†ūüôā

Meet the sweet¬†Birthday Sandy by Inky Impressions.She’s been coloured up with Copic Ciao Markers and fussy cut so she can perch on the edge of the frame ūüôā The banners,balloons kind of encircle her too.I made a tent fold card as I haven’t done one for a while.I cut the aperture with a Go Kreate die and also used them to make the frame.I placed the patterned paper inside as it creates a nice background for her.The paper on the front gives the feel of a Birthday tea – full of treats!Once I’d finished making this card I realised the only real embellishment that’s been added is the baker’s twine!I was tempted to rummage through my stash for something else but then thought,no I like it as it is ūüôā Hope you do too?

I’ve coloured the most delightful Lizzie’s Bundle of Joy by Inky Impressions with Copic Ciao Markers.I’ve also added this fabby Birthday Wishes Banner¬†– a great addition ūüôā Apart from the obvious colour choice I dug out a tired looking white fabric flower that I’d saved rather than thrown out…you know ‘just in case’.Well this was the ‘in case’ ūüôā First off as I knew I wasn’t going to use all of it due to the size I cut it in half then got busy with the Copics on this too.I adhered it to the card base and added the die cut card and patterned paper.I shaved this down a little as I didn’t want to cover up too much of the flower.Once all stuck in place I trimmed off all the overhanging pieces around the edges.The flower border covers where the die cuts were cut off and adds some extra detail.This wasn’t quite the right shade of green so out came the Copics once more.Once the banner was in place I slipped in these lovely sparkly flowers ūüôā
