Very happy and 2 challenges!

OMG look what arrived this morning!! I have been thoroughly spoiled by the lovely Vicki!!!!!
Vicki, words fail me (for a change!!!), you are such a kind and generous person and I was gobsmacked when I opened this package this morning!!
From top left we have a gorgeous bag filled with a packet of Thorntons chocs!, a packet of Betty Crocker muffin mix!!!!, a fab card, a fantastice box filled with allsorts of goodies and then a wallet bursting with stamped images!!!
Vicki, you are a diamond, thank you so much!!
The colour scheme of Vicki's pressies inspired the colours for my card which I am entering into 2 challenges. The first being Stamp with Us, which was to use 2 patterned papers, 4 brads and 1 ribbon!!
Now you can only just see one of the patterned papers but I have used some spotty So Saffron papers on the scalloped nestie!!! The cupcake has been made using Stampin Up punches and I will post a tutorial on it very soon for you!
Background stamped with the Seeing Spots stamp and then I have used my Oval punches with the Oval All set

Sarah B inspired me to use the brads as topping on the cupcake so I have used 4, it could have done with 5 but I didnt want to disobey the rules!

I am also entering this card in for the Papertake Weekly challenge which is to use Spot and Stripes!!!

Bye for now folks!
