Cupcake challenge 40

My second card today is for this weeks Cupcake challenge where there is a super sketch from Donna.

For the main image I used a new Inkadinkado set 98852. I think these are the latest fad they call 'inchies' and something tells me they are intended to swap rather like ATC's - sure someone will put me right here ? But I liked the images and have selected four spring like ones, birds nest, tulips, thrush (well he looks like a thrush to me) and a butterfly - of course. And to go with the spring theme some really fresh double sided DP - afraid have no idea of the origin other than Stampalot which is where the stamp set also came from.

The images are stamped onto bazzil using versafine sepia and detail clear embossing powder. The sentiment is a skinny stamp from Stamps by Judith (Stampaddicts). The narrow side strip was made using my new Fiskars punch and gold swirly embellies in the corners.

A lovely card Brenda. I have a different set of these inchy inkadinkado stamps but couldn't decide what to do with them. You have inspired me to get them out and try again.
