Three Clovers Thursday Challenge #4






















I knew I had to play along when I saw this photo. I have seriously been trying to use up ten years worth of stash!! I thought of this flowery paper when I looked at the gorgeous cake.

I made this for my niece who LOVES orange. She has a big furry orange chair in her room and all kinds of orange decor. I wish she lived closer to her Godmom/Aunt. She loves crafts and her mom doesn't. I could keep her busy!!

Don't laugh -- her birthday isn't until August but I made this with her in mind. I used SU Regal Rose cs and also Marigold Morning (I think?) and some Bazzill Bling in a celery color. The cupcake & flower bling are Hero Arts and sentiment is Amuse. I painted over the Pumpkin Pie marker with Shimmerz on the cupcake.





Go and check out Kerry's blog and see how the talented ladies over there got inspired by this cake.

that cake looks yummy-
making cards for August already? I love the feeling when I am ahead on stuff- unfortunately I am behind on stuff currently which I'm not very fond of that feeling.
