Chocolate Orange

This weeks challenge at Cupcake Inspirations inspired me to make this......... You don't have to include a cupcake in your design but it just so happens that I acquired this new digital stamp from Tiddly Inks this week. She is Cheery Q from the Curly Q's set of images. The cupcake inspiration is a wonderful cupcake with pale orange frosting and a chocolate brown lace bow decoration. mmmmmm........ chocolate orange - which reminds me I haven't made chocolate orange muffins for a while, a yummy reciped kindly provided by Sonja. Maybe some baking is in order this week I spotted a very tasty looking banana cake recipe yesterday that I want to give a whirl.

Sorry back to the card ..... the background is cardstock by Coredinations from the appropriately named chocolate box stack. This one has an orange core which I sanded after embossing with the cuttlebug swiss dots folder. To include the lace theme I pleated some around the edge of my image and added some to the bottom of my card.

See you later in the week you never know I may even have some cake for you :-)

Oh,yes, make some cake Amanda! I can't believe you actually had chocolate-orange cardstock, how clever is that? You've got me wondering if there is a Chocolate Orange somewhere in my future very soon. Might nip to the shop..
