Carrot cake?

This one makes me smile everytime I see it!

How cute does carrot look with a candle on his head?

I'm entering this into the Cupboard trilogy challenge, which this month is to use spots and stripes- well the cake's spotty and the candle's stripey!

I'm also entering into the Try it on Tuesday challenge, which is to use seasonal or bright colours- I thought the autumnal colours were appropriate, and quite bright too!

Aqua elegance

A commissioned card to show today, my brief was a 21st card for a girly girl. I went for a spot of elegance, and lots of bling!

Not the best photo I'm afraid! I love this colour combination, not one I use often, but it's really effective. I made the bow using a You Tube tutorial- see it here.

This Stampin' up shoe is gorgeous- I stamped it in blue, popped on a bit of judicious colouring with a pale aqua glaze pen, and put lots and lots of tiny gems on. The edge of the cream card is stamped with another Stampin' Up favourite- Baroque motifs, I used a glue pad and swooshed it with glamour dust.

I'm entering it into the Crafting Musketeers pretty pastel challenge.
