Carrot Cupcake

Hello everyone! Another card and a yummy one I hope.

This week's theme at the Magnolia Down Under Challenge is: Cupcake. Since this isn't a colour challenge, I can do another card for my Black & White Plus ... Collection. (And you thought I had finished with it. Sorry, but no, and I also have a few more colours I want to try out later, so bear with me please ladies.)

It was probably obvious that eventually I would choose orange as the additional color--black and orange go together, them being Halloween colours. (Is Halloween celebrated down under? Pumpkins, jack o' lanterns, ghosts and goblins, Ichabod Crane and all that stuff. Or is it strictly a North American thing?) I didn't have to improvise on this one as I do have a Tilda-holding-a-cupcake/muffin stamp--an obvious choice to me. Here's the card and I think I'll call it Carrot Cupcake card, or should that be Carrot Cake Cupcake card? LOL


And I did a bit more work for the inside of the card.


Woohoo...weekend coming up! Planning to sleep in tomorrow morning. Have wonderful weekend everyone!

Stamps: Magnolia #255 Tilda with Cowberry Muffin and #531 Shelf with Kitchen Towels, Stampendous TC51 Foliate Quad Cube, Inkadinkado clear stamp set 97628 Birthday Cupcake
Papers: Basic Grey ambrosia fresh-squeezed, making memories (note) worthy Delaney Ledger Circle, Hot off the Press Mixing Masculine Papers

Oooh, WOW!! This is really, really GORGEOUS!! AWESOME!
I really like the lay out and all, the background are just superb - really gives a feeling she's in the kitchen. I love the colour scheme, too! Wow, you're just amazing.

The inside of the cards is really a work of art in itself!
The girls will really like this one.

I so look forward to your blog everytime just to see what you've created this time.

WOW WOW WOW - you've done an amazing job with your carrot cupcake card!!! Love it!!! Boy I wished you lived closer so I could come and hassle you for lessons - LOL.

Australia keeps putting halloween stuff in the shops - but it's never taken on like in The States - it's more of an excuse for a theme party - LOL.
