Clearly Besotted Thank You card


 Hello everyone,

Just a quick post today to share a CAS thank you card I made for some friends who gave us the most wonderful summer afternoon tea last week with lots of sandwiches, scones, cakes, strawberries and clotted cream. Yummy in the extreme but I had to climb back onto my diet the next day.



I used a gingham stamp from PTI Bitty Backgrounds, stamped in green, and I then used the cupcake and strawberry  from the Clearly Besotted Sweet Treats stamp and die set ( I was staggered to find that this stamp set has been retired before I even inked it up!) I coated the icing with some WOS to give it a frosting look but it has not really shown up on the photo.




For the sentiment I took the 'thank you' from Mama Elephant Bear Hugs and the 'berry much' from PTI Punny Sentiments, and finished the card off with a little red heart.

I'd like to slip this into the Casology Cupcake challenge before it closes today
