HYCCT1407 ~Cupcake Day~

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I mentioned on my last post that I was going to a cooking class. It was a fun time with some other friends that like to cook. In fact, it was my exercise team from my gym that went with me.
The class was using Pork loin and they marinated it in a delicious mixture of red wine, orange zest strips, rosemary, onion, red currant jelly, salt and pepper. We also had fontina risotto cakes with fresh chives.
Dessert was crepe cake with mascarpone crème & almond praline. The dessert was one of those ones that was over the top. I don't think  I would make this one. It was really delicious but so involved. The other 2 recipes I will definitely make.
If you would like a more detailed recipe, drop me an email. I have all the recipes.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the HYCCT1407 challenge. Misti was our hostess and she titled her challenge a "spoonful of sugar".  She wanted us to use a sugary treat image on our card.
I found the perfect designer paper in my stash so I decided to use a cupcake as my sugar treat. My card colors are pool party, soft suede and calypso coral.  The cupcake image and sentiment are from the Stampin-Up "cupcake party" set. I used the coordinatng cupcake punch as well. The splatters are from the Stampin-Up "gorgeous grunge" set.

The embossing is a folder from Darice. My card layout is from the SCS Wednesday sketch challenge #509.
Well, it's time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time........God bless.
