Where Creativity meets C9 : Challenge 17

Hey there! Happy Sunday. I have a funny story about this card. I wanted to enter the Where Creativity Meets C9 latest Challenge which is to use your first Concord & 9th set. So, I know exactly what set that is... Many Mandalas. So I’ve been searching high and low for this set for weeks! Ever since the challenge was announced. I even flirted briefly with using the 2nd stamp set I purchased rationalizing that no one would know. But I would know, so no can do.

Thanks for stopping by!

Today I am showing you my entry into  Lawnfawnatics Challenge 20:  Fun with food!! I think Lawn Fawn has the best food stamps, and I was lucky to get “Baked with Love” stamp set for Christmas.  I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: A Spot of Blue.

This is a birthday card for hubby as he likes CAS cards.  Also, this is the very first card I used masking on! Santa forgot the coordinating dies and I was forced to try masking. Which is also on my 2018 list of crafty things to try.  
I stamped the images with Simon says Stamp black ink and colored with Copics and Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I used a white pen for highlights and Glossy Accents on the heart and cupcake frosting which does not photograph at all!  I propped the card onto some lipstick red paper and mounted on a turquoise base as …
