Wishing You A Lifetime Of Love....

Good morning everyone!

I'm thrilled to be showing you my guest DT card today for Cupcake Inspirations.... I was so happy to be asked to join the team for a week as this is fast becoming one of my fave challenges! The photo inspiration each week is truly delicious and you can't help but be inspired to create something a bit yummy!

As you can see this week's inspiration comes from lots of scrumptious cupcakes and biscuits.... think green and pink, hearts and pearls, shamrocks and good luck.... there's so much you can do!

I've banned my daughter Georgia from my blog today as it's her birthday tomorrow and this card is for her. I thought an easel card would make it special and, as she loves Tilda, I knew this cutie would be well received! My papers are Basic Grey Urban Prairie.... haven't used these for a very long time! I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the middle strips and a heart doily from my stash. And my handmade roses are making an appearance again.... told you I'd be making them alot, lol! I found a cute little shamrock stamp in my stash which I think is by High Hopes, so I stamped and cut a few out to tie in with the St Patrick's Day theme too!

Here's another view of the easel just for good measure.... I forgot how much fun they are to make!

I'm also entering the following challenges with my card:

Daring Cardmakers - Home Baked (flowers)

Tip Top Tuesday - Happy Birthday

PaperPlay - Shades Of Green/Good Luck

Charisma - Easel Card

Shabby Tea Room - Luck Of The Irish

So I'd like to thank the girls over at Cupcake Inspirations so much for having me and I really hope you'll feel inspired to join in too!

Have a lovely Sunday ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx

I don't generally 'gush' or use words like 'gorgeous' or 'Stunning' very often, but this card is both stunning and gorgeous!
Love all the details and the colour pallette is just scrummy!
