Chocolate, Coffee & Cards – Polka Dots!

Hello, how are things in the world of you?

I’m here today to let you know that there is a new challenge starting over on the Chocolate, Coffee and Cards Challenge Blog and our theme this fortnight is Polka Dots!

We are sponsored by the incredible Bugaboo Stamps
who generously let the DT pick an image to work with and I chose Fancy Sunbonnet Cake!

Easel cards are a pain to photograph!

Mmmmmm, green icing!
I made this for my sister-in-law who is a big fan of green! But probably not green icing!  She will, however, be more than happy with the very conservative amount of candles on the cake!! (Impish grin J)

Ingredients (not for the cake):
Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Beautiful Blooms’ -Tonic Nesting Ovals
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – Hunkydory- American Crafts
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Silky Crush Ribbon – gems from stash

I hope you will join us for this great challenge. Check out the blog for all the wonderful DT inspiration and play along!

Thanks so much for looking and have a fab day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
