52 Cards Wk4: picture inspiration

This weeks prompt for the 52 card challenge is to draw inspiration from this picture 
I kept looking at this picture over and over again and kraft jumped out at me straight away as to did the lace doily. I was certain I would definetly run with these two ideas but I kept changing my mind and eventually made this card 
After looking through Pinterest I like cards with white embossed elements to them and as I want to use my embossing folders more I ran with this. I chose a polka dot folder as this mimicked the dots on the cookies and then instead of using a doily I used a Martha Stewart lace edge punch for a lace effect. 

Whilst deciding what to do all week I came across a pack of MME embellishments I had brought on impulse from Create & Craft some time ago but have never used. The embellishments picked up both the colour scheme and the small flowers from the picture so I added one of these along with some ribbon I received in an old kit but had never used. 


  1. Really pretty card - still not decided what to do for mine x

  2. Lovely - the polka dots look great!

  3. Very the vibrant colours & how you interpreted the original photo!! Txx
