Creative Inspirations Challenge #60

Hi all firstly can I apologise for my lack of commenting but my wrists and hands have not been good, I have treated myself to a Laptop stand which I hope will help while I am on the computer.

Our new Fortnightly challenge theme has been chosen by our lovely Suzi, which is 
No Cooking Cupcake Recipe
Our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish

Here is my DT card which fortunately I made several days ago.
I decided to use Tilda and the Magnolia cake stamps, I also went for a pink and brown colour theme. I stamped Tilda and the cakes, coloured them with Copics and cut them out.
I used a mixture of papers, added lace, seam binding ribbon, flowers, I also used my Multi Cut Blossom Punch for the doily (if you like the look of this watch out for my followers candy in June), I also stamped and added a mini 'It's Your Day' sentiment and finally added some gems.

For an extra effect I added Glossy Accents to the icing on the cakes. 

I would also like to enter this one into the following challenges:

I hope that you have found a little inspiration in my card and please come join us at
