Icing the Cake

Good evening, all! I have the Internet back, huzza! I've missed you!!

Here's a Christmas card for a lovely friend of my daughter. She's a baker, so I used Icing the Cake by LotV, isn't she cute?

I coloured her with Promarkers and stickled the flower in her chef's hat. I used a Nestie that was only just big enough, so I cut round the dog's tail so that I could ease the die underneath while I cut it out. (Does that make sense?)

The sketch is from last week's Sketch Saturday, but I couldn't upload it in time. :( The papers are by Raspberry Road, they came free with a magazine - they are gorgeous! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I used a Woodware punch for the leaves.

The flourish is a Magnolia die, with Hobbycraft pearls on the ends. The gingham ribbon also came from Hobbycraft. The sentiment is also LotV - since there wasn't really enough room to mat it, I went round the edge with a Burgundy Promarker. I love that you can do that with these circular stamps because there's a narrow border around the edge.

So there we go! My daughter says her friend will like it, she's not a girly girl ('NO PINK!' my daughter said).

I'm entering the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge whose theme is 'Food, Glorious Food!' Icing sugar is food, isn't it? Certainly my kids used to eat a lot of it at Christmas!!

Thanks for looking, my dearios, and have a fantastic weekend!
