Sweet treat

Oh, am i glad its Friday! Its been a strange week - weather been funny, kids been good (that strange in itself lol) and my daughter took over my craft room! Anyway, gonna get all jobs done today, yes, even the ironing lol, then me and Bex are gonna have ourselves a crafty weekend - and there's Strictly and X Factor too - what more could a girl want?
Today's card is one my son asked me to make for one of his college friends who loves cupcakes (don't we all) and this is what I came up with.
Recipe: To start I used a 6 in square scalloped card blank, then I used a collection of papers and die cuts called The little cake shoppe and covered card blank with red card then layered with the strawberry paper. I used my sizzix scallop circle die and a plain circle die, place one on top of the other and then assembled the die cut cupcake just off centre. The little strawberry die cuts were extras in the pack, the little tabs were just scraps of card I used for decoration and the ribbon and pearls were from my stash.
Have a good day
