  5. That cupcake and everything with it looks very yummy to me! I think I love that bronze embossing powder. Hmmm... could I fit one more on the shelf? Cute stamps! What a fun card, Donna!

  6. Lots of yummy goodness on this card. I don't know if I prefer the cupcake or chocolate kisses! That's some fancy fussy cutting too. Love this monochromatic design filled with lots of dimension.
