You had me at cupcakes!

Hey there,
today I am sharing a 'modern retro' card with you.

The 'modern' bit, is the card layout -I  keep seeing variations of this on my blog travels - and it's a really versatile style.
Then, the 'retro' bit is the cupcake.
Can you remember a few years ago, when cupcakes were EVERYWHERE?
Don't tell me you don't have at least one cupcake stamp lurking at the bottom of your stash.
Dig it out, and give it a modern twist.

I stuck with bold colours and no shading to continue my 'retro' theme,
but I couldn't help adding some sparkle  :-)

Retro Sketches - # 103

Cupcake Satmp from Simon Says, Savor Sweet Cupcakes, coloured with a Copic and
sprinkled with Diamong Dust.

Caroline, I love this card. If this is retro I'm in. But alas I dont have one, not one cupcake stamp. They never appealed but now......
