Let them eat cake!

I was a bit worried when I saw that this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin is Cake, because I am so rigorous about my diabetes management programme that I don't even buy cake themed stash! How's that for self restraint? But it means I thought I wouldn't be playing.

Then I remembered this stamp set that was a magazine freebie some years ago - I think it was probably Polkadoodles magazine, it certainly looks like a Polkadoodles stamp.

I coloured it with Promarkers (has anyone else noticed that since they changed from Letraset to Winsor and Newton they sometimes give patchy results?) and teamed it with papers from my stash and a sweet ribbon to make a centre stepper card.

I am sharing this with
Sweet Stampin - Cake
Fab'n'funky - Use a patterned paper 
Allsorts Challenge - Fancy Folds 
ATSM - Anything Goes

A super card Jane. It's got a really retro look to it. Barbxx

Now that's what I call restrained Jane ! But I will admit to a certain degree of glee when I get a low reading and a cube or two of Cadbury's isn't a sin.

Great card and such lovely bright cheery colours, many thanks for joining in with our Fancy Folds theme at Allsorts challenge this week.
