Time to bake

   This is a birthday card for someone who loves baking, but I hope the mice never get into her kitchen!
   I matted and layered the designer paper from my stash and teal mirri card onto white card. Using a Spellbinders floral doily accent die I cut a strip of magenta mirri card and fixed this across the bottom of the card. I glued a blue gem stone into the centre of each flower and attached a bow at one end.
   The image is from a House Mouse Design stamp called 'Sugar and spice and everything nice'. I coloured it using Promarkers, cut it out and used a punch to round the corners. I then matted it onto teal mirri card, fixed it to the card and glued blue gem stones in each of the corners. I used tattered lace dies to cut the best wishes from magenta mirri card.
