Stars and Stripes

Hi Everyone, from wet and cold Wales, well I say cold, it's 15C, but for a summer day I want SUN and real warmth. Oh! well, we could be worse I suppose, we could be flooded as in India.

On to my card, as you know I love Elizabeth Dulemba images on her colouring book page here well here is another, I wanted to make a birthday card, so looked through my digi images and this cupcake image popped out at me.  I used Make a Wish papers and elements by M. Turnidge at Scraporchard.  Great bright happy papers I thought, I then coloured and shaded the cupcakes in PS to match the paper colours and paper pieced the stand also in PS.  The papers were added to the card and the circle and stars are put on 3D stickers.  The ribbon I am thrilled to say matched exactly with the stripe.

I will also add this to Elizabeth Dulemba gallery.

EDITED thrilled to say, ELizabeth chose me as featured card in her weekly newsletter.

I am entering the following challenges
