Fairy Cakes!

I hadn't made an 8x8 card for a while so I decided to use a stamp I bought at the SECC to make one.  This Helz Cuppleditch stamp is absolutely gigantic, it only just fitted my largest acrylic block, making it perfect for larger projects.  It was a total bargain at £1 too!
I coloured the image with Promarkers and highlighted it with Glamour Dust for a bit of fairy sparkle.  The papers are all Papermania Little Cake Shoppe, another SECC bargain.  I already had the A5 size paper pack but when I saw the A4 pack at £2.50 I couldn't resist!  The cake embellishments were fussy cut from the paper pack and decorated with tiny pearls.  The sentiment was done with a Creative Expressions stamp and highlighted with Stickles in Christmas Red and Cotton Candy.  No cupcake themed card would be complete with out using my Martha Stewart cupcake border punch and I added a Dovecraft cupcake brad to the middle of a large bow to continue the theme.  I'm not sure if these fairies would be a hindrance or a help in the kitchen but maybe they'd be useful for the clearing up!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Papertake - pick of the year, I chose sketch 66
Fab 'n' Funky - #152 - add ribbon and/or lace
Flutterby Wednesday - #219 - open
Paper Pretties - Wednesday - #237 - glitter
Try it on Tuesday - lucky dip - ribbon, pearls, sentiment, stamped image
