Let Them Eat Cake!

Happy Friday everyone! I've been working such long hours recently that I have more than made up enough time for a flexi day from work ... so today I am having a rare day of r&r and playtime!!

I decided to make a card using the adorable LotV "Rosie with Cake" - another stamp I'm ashamed to say I've had since last autumn and not inked up before ... all the stamps I bought back then had to wait until after the Christmas rush!! Anyhow, I decided to go ultra girly today, and here is the result.

Main image: LotV "Rosie with Cake" coloured wtih Promarkers and Copics;
Sentiment: LotV Sentiment Circles;
Papers: Pink Petticoat "Vintage Rose";
Supplies: all flowers from Wild orchid Crafts; pearls from Wild orchid Crafts & The Hobby House; pink raffia lace from my stash;
Tools: nestabilities small circles, lacy circles and "Labels One"; martha Stewart "Valentine lace" edge punch.
