Happy Sunday, dear friends! April is all but over and I suspect this will be my last card for the month. I'm closing with something sweet and my humble opinion, at least. The weather has been kind; ungrudgingly bounteous. Why? Nary a drop of rain all day! On the contrary, we've had sunshine all day. As you can imagine, my elation is beyond description, and with my spirit abloom, I made this floral number, befitting a sunny spring day. The sketch is from Card Patterns #163 and the recipe is from Basic Grey Challenge #67. For inspiration I turned to CES Challenge #83 "Candy & Cupcake" and Raise the Bar #102 "Lei" led me to add the floral garland. Divas by Design Challenge #32 is all about buttons and bows, so I'm taking my card to party along with them.

Square card base measuring 4.25". The patterned papers are from Basic Grey "Sweet Threads" 6x6 pack.  
The recipe: 1 image, 2 patterned papers and 3 embellishments (ribbon, button & floral lace). 
The cupcake stamp is by Papermania, coloured in with Promarkers. I cut it out with Spellbinders Beaded Oval die did and some stencilling with TH's Antique Linen.
A little foam tape to lift the label off the card.
On the inside I did some stitching and threw in some scraps  of the floral paper.

Swing by Make It Monday #87 for some truly spectacular cards and other crafty creations.

Thanks for hanging out with me on this glorious Sunday. I'm going to sit out in the garden, enjoy the sun and listen to some music. Hope your Sunday is equally blessed. Until tomorrow, my friends.
