Midway challenge #76 at Digistamps4Joy

Good morning blogging friends.
Firstly I had some new followers that I haven't welcomed. I am so pleased you have joined my friends list and hope to se you pop in often. I do appreciate all the visits and comments that you leave.

 This is my card for  challenge #76 that Margaret is hosting at Digistamps4Joy

She has challenged us to use some colours from the inspirational photo and also for a twist to add ribbon or twine. You still have a week to enter for some lovely prizes. You don't have to have a DS4J image, so hurry over and see the lovely cards made by both teams and come and join in the fun.

Here is what I used:
I made a sidestep card using the following images

Misteri - baker. You can find it HERE
Cupcakes galore that you can find HERE. Coloured them with distress inkpads, cut out and added 3D Pontura to the cupcakes, also glossy accents to the cake stand  to look like glass. I don't think it shows up so well though.

Paper...The orange stripey/floral is from my stash. The blue I made by stamping cupcakes and using pan pastels to colour it.
Sentiments...printed the one on my computer and the round one is from Country Crafts a local company.
Added twine to finish.

Will enter the following challenges:
Anything goes challenge #101...Out with the girls

I wish you all a wonderful rest of the week. We had a holiday here yesterday, so the week will be a little strange, but as it is Wednesday we are on the downhill run to the weekend. We are also due to have some lovely hot weather, so all is good.
Take care, have fun and see you back here soon.
Love Ursula

You did use these colors beautifully, Ursula! Especially to get the white chef's outfit so perfect with the distress inks. Nice! Very cute side step card to display this image. Reminds me of a bakery window!

Ooooh Ursula, this is stunning. I love the sentiment re Cake being love from the oven - so true when you think about the love baker's put into their cakes. Misterie baker has certainly put a lot of love into her cake and in displaying them on the cake stand. I love the colours - Nature really is the master of colour and you are a sincere observer of Nature. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
