Alphabet Challenge - Letter C - Cake

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? We are a bit closer to Easter with today being Good Friday. We are going to church later for a service.

The new challenge starts today on the Alphabet Challenge blog the letter is C and the theme is Cake.

This is an 8" x 8" card. I created the background by stamping a cupcake stamp with Perfect Medium and heat embossing with a white powder. Then I used Distress Ink to colour the background. I do like the resist technique. 

The tea-pot, cups and cupcake dies came from my Crafter's Companion Advent calendar. 

This is an actual recipe I got it from the internet. I copied it into Word and I edited the text to make it look the way I wanted. I printed onto white card in brown and I inked the edges with Distress ink. The Happy Birthday die came from the same Advent Calendar. 

I hope you have a wonderful Easter.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
