i have a few weddings coming up so i thought i would get a head start. one of the colour schemes is ivory and brown so this is the card i have made for that one. the card is for the cupcake craft challenge which this week has to have 2 colours,(brown and ivory) 2 shapes(circles and oblong card stock) and 2 pieces of ribbon(brown and ivory) to celebrate erin's daughters 2nd birthday. it also fits with the challenge on a spoonfull of sugar which has to feature lace. the layout is also for the sketch on sketch and stash , i know i have already made a card for this but i got carried away!!!!! the stamp is a magnolia from sir stampalot called 'love cake' and it is new,the adhesive stones i had forgotten about and the flowers and paper i have had for ages. phew i think that is all for this one. takes longer to post than it does to make the card!!!!!!!!lol x
