Never Too Old...

........for Cupcake!  What a great sentiment and a fab stamp from Lili of the Valley. This will be getting a lot of use.

I really enjoyed colouring this image and added glamour dust to the wings and the icing for extra sparkle. I used a Spellbinders plain circle matted it onto this Cheery Lynn Sunflower die. It is a lovely die but a real pain to cut - it needs a number of goes through the machine, turning each time but it's worth persevering with. The flowers and leaves are Martha Stewart punches and the butterflies at the corner are part of this Butterfly Vine Border by Memory Box. I added plenty of gems and pink spotted ribbon to finish off.
