TRuly Scrumptious Challenge #27-Good Enough to Eat!

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
This week for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge #27, we have a yummy sketch, by the talented Dawn and the added challenge of "good enough to eat!"
Easy peasy! I LOVE adding cupcakes and cakes to my cards!
First here is the sketch for this challenge:



I used one of my old time faves-Giggling Tilda. You can get her from Magnolia-licious.
The paper and ric rac are brand new My Mind's Eye-Quite Contrary. Yummy!
The pearl flourishes are Basic Grey
Half back pearls and crochet flowers are CTMH

The cake plate, cupcake and sentiment are Darcie stamps. So yummy and fun!
I first stamped Tilda, and then I made a mask of her and then stamped the cake plate over part of Tilda {with the mask firmly in place with repositional tombow adhesive}
Then I used the out of the box technique with my nesties so Tilda's sweet head can pop up above the frame.
I also airbrushed the backgrounds. So fun!

Make sure you pop on over to the Truly Scrumptious blog to see what the other designer's created!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Gorgeous Nicole, so pretty, love your Tilda, I thought she was yawning when I first got her. Beautiful papers and details.
Been struggling to get an airbrush here in Germany but just found one on Amazon - I think I've ordered it but with my poor German I'm not quite sure - it's wait and see time lol.
