The Card Concept #31

IMG_7660


Ready for another challenge at The Card Concept?
We have a yummy photo inspiration up on the blog today:




I went with the obvious for my card this challenge. I have had this Hero Arts cling stamp for a few years now and I love how fun it is to colour. I was inspired by the raspberry pink and red and my cupcake is decorated using those colours. I went over all of the colouring after I was done with a clear Wink of Stella brush.  In the detail photo at the bottom I managed to actually capture to shine with the camera on my phone because my DSLR doesn't seem to be able to--LOL

Hoping that I will be able to sleep tonight, like the night my daughter was flying 7 000 km over the ocean (4 400 miles) she is on an overnight ferry crossing from Pompeii, Italy to Patras, Greece. She is halfway through her trip. I have been getting (brief) nightly updates via texts which have been wonderful. She is having a fabulous time soaking up the culture, the history and the amazing food.
