You're My Cupcake: an aperture card :)

I'd like to thank Newton's Nook Designs for sending the ultra sweet stamp set "Love a la Carte!" This card was seriously a challenge because it requires 4 colors, something I don't typically do. I like to stick to 2 or 3 colors...but 4? Ok, I'm game!

  1. Hi Rosy! Thanks so much for playing along with our Inky Paws Challenge! I'm glad our challenge with 4 colors stretched your usual creativity! I love what you created! It looks very fun and sparkly!

  2. What a great card design. I love the colors you choose too.

  3. Hi Rosy, What a delightful card. Love the way you added the 'icing' on the bright cupcake, and the aperture design is just so striking & pretty. Hope you've been keeping well. TFS & Hugs

  7. Lovely card! I love the window in the front.

  8. I just adore this card Rosy!!! All the elements go so well together, and you did a wonderful job using 4 - yes 4 - colors. That would really be hard for me too! I think the hardest would be to find 4 different colors that all go together, and you FOUND them!! I love that shiny cupcake too - very sweet (no pun) - and your yellow bow is so precious. Well done my dear!
