Cupcake Theif

It was our monthly book group meeting last night but this time it was a bit of a special one as one of our group turns 40 this weekend.  Now there is always cake at a birthday party I know, but for this particular friend it's not just a nicety it's a necessity - she always claims she has a "second stomach" specially designed for cake so will always say yes to dessert even if she was stuffed after mains.  So there was an obvious image for her card - the fabby cupcake theif from Mo Manning

I decided to restrict my colouring of her (except for hair and skin) to the lovely colours at this week's Color Throwdown challenge - teals, purples and vanilla.   I carried on the colours to the background with some DCWV background papers, a EK sucess border punch with the cherries replaced by purple gems and a Forty cut on my silhouette in two shades using the very nifty "offset" feature which is just brilliant!

I'm also going to enter it into this weeks challenge at Mo's Digital Challenge which is to use an image of a dog or of someone "in the doghouse" well she'd be in the doghouse for sure if she tried to pinch my friends birthday cupcakes!!!! -

As it was made for a friend, I'm also going to enter it into this weeks Do You Stack Up challenge which is "for a friend"
