Well! I thought the easel card was hard to photograph..... this was even worse!!
However, I am sitting here feeling rather smug with myself cos this is the very first time I have attempted a stepper card!! I know, I know, everyone else has been making these for ages and as usual I am twelve years behind everyone else... but I did it!!!

So less of the patting on the back and onto the card - the image is a delish one from the lovely Mo Manning. And the best bit about these scrummylicious cupcakes is they are calorie free!

I coloured it with distress inks and some promarkers and dusted a wee bit of stickles and glitter for a bit of sparkle. The K and Co paper that frames it was cut out with one of my newer nestie buys!
The stripey paper was a free gift in a magazine and is from Craftwork Cards.
The cupcakes on the 'steps' and the paper strips were cut from the Basic Grey 'Nook and Pantry' paper stack.
The card candy as usual was coloured with a promarker to match the paper and I finished with a huge spotty bow from my stash!
