Anyone for Cake

Evening Folks
Hope you are all well today.  Blimey, hasn't the weekend gone quickly. Can't believe it's Monday tomorrow and back to work.  It has been a beautiful weekend though with lots of sunshine.  Let's hope it decides to stick around for a while.
Not so sure I enjoyed losing an hour last night when the clocks went forward but certainly enjoyed it today when it got darker later.  Hubby actually got out and mowed the lawn today - the first time this year.  It was getting very long and it was hard going but looks so much better now.  I suppose that was the sign for me to get out this week and do some weeding lol.
Anyway, here is a little easel card that I have made for my birthday box.  I am trying to use up some of the numerous toppers that I have had lying around for months.

The cupcake topper is by Dovecraft and I must have had it about 18 months now.  It came as part of a pad of cupcake toppers so got several more left lol.  All the papers are either Papermania or Dovecraft.  I die cut the ovals for the cupcake to sit on.  The sentiment at the bottom is from a Creative Expressions stamp plate which features cupcakes.  I die cut some fancy pieces from one of my Spellbinders sets to add to either side of the sentiment.  Finishing touches were the brown organza ribbon, some flowers from my stash, pearls and a couple of little flower charms (hanging from the bow).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says - Bingo (1d  flowers, pearls, charms)
CES Challenges - photo inspiration

Stamp N Doodle - Circles and/or ovals

this is a lovely easel card, and great use of the topper there.
I also find little 'collections' of things on my desk that have the intention of being on card, but don't always quite make it. :-)
