Cupcake Creations Color Challenge

This is my second post today ... I have had a pretty free day today to spend crafting so I have a card to share that I've done for Cupcake Creations Color Challenge ... this is the inspiration photo



Soft and oh so pretty .... and like Clare ... I too am using one of the images for the Help Katie campaign which you can find on Jak Heath's blog ... a worthy cause and one that makes you say ... "but for the grace of God ... "  if you have a moment please pop over and take a look
So, my card ...


Those pretty flowers are one of the many digital stamps which you receive following your donation ... I printed them twice and fussy cut them .. layering one on top of the other ... with a couple of little lilac sticker flowers placed here and there ... The green paper is from a pad my friend Stella sent me and everything else is from my stash ...


Oh, yes... and I used glitter!!

Till soon
