Cutie Pie DT Card

Morning all!  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Cutie Pie, we'd love you to play along.  This time we want to see "Shaped Cards".  I really enjoyed this challenge as I tend to get a bit stuck in a rut with square or 5x7 cards, so I dug out this cute cupcake shaped card blank, which I think is Papermania.  Our sponsors this time are Heather Ellis and Sweet stamps which means double the chance to win a prize.  The DT were lucky enough to be given a Heather Ellis digi to play with, I chose this adorable one and coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, adding a design on her dress with Sakura metallic pens.
The papers I used are all Papermania and are left over from when I made cupcake shaped favour boxes for my sister's wedding, and have been inked with Walnut Stain Distress ink.  The sentiment stamp is from a Magazine freebie set which I use a lot.  I made the flowers and leaves with Woodware punches and topped my cupcake with a heart shaped button threaded with baker's twine.  Some gems and a few blob of Pearl Pen finish it off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Joanna Sheen - so sweet
One Stop Craft - #199 - bake a cake
Poodle's Parlour - here come the girls
Charisma Cardz - # 36 - shaped cards
Dutch Dare - #182 - sugar and spice
In the Pink - #3 - anything but square
