Cupcake Fairy

Hiya folks!

How you all keeping? Hope you are all well today?

Thought I would pop by with this little make that I did for my D2's B'day today. She is a whopping SEVEN now - where do the years go?? Only seemed like yesterday that I was shoving her out! LOL Not that she's too happy a bunny right now. She came down with a nasty cough over the weekend, which got worse on Monday. Couldn't stop all day, and it's only just starting to ease off now, but very gradually. Poor wee fluff, she was desperate not to be ill on her birthday. Just hope the tonne of pressies cheered her up a bit!

Anyway, here is the card I made. It was meant to be just for the sake of it, but I completely ran out of time to make a special card for her b'day, so decided to use this as the one for that:

I have used my 'Cupcake Fairy' image for this one, and lots of girly pink, as she loves all things pink! I did colour the wings in more of an orangey colour though. Even the icing on the cupcake is pink. Left the Strawberry on the top as red - would look daft with a pink strawberry!!

I have also used my 'Simple Butterfly' image, printed onto patterned dp and fussy cut. The flowers as usual are made with spare card and punches, with gems for their centres. Also added some big pink gems to follow the sketch which is from Craft Your Passion.

Got to admit - I'd love that cupcake right now!! LOL

Will have to wait for the party food tonight though - be good Mum!!
