How delish are these cupcakes.......almost too good to eat, almost!!!  
OK so chocolate and soft pinks, flowers and pearls are what came to mind for me.

I recently received a box of new goodies, including new dies and some scrumptious new DP from Prima that just begged to be used.

Chocolate base card with a layer of soft pink followed by dp from the Tea - Thyme collection 6 x 6 paper pad, Prima.
Next came the Catalina Wreath from Memory Box die cut from more of the soft pink card.
I used a selection of pinks from MME Lost & Found - Market Street and The Sweetest Thing - Lavender to die cut the following flowers to add to the wreath.
Memory Box Small Pinwheel Posie.
Memory Box Petal Party.
Die-namics Prima Donna Petals.
C.C. Designs Phlox Flowers.
To finish the centres I added some chocolate, Flourish With A Bling Pearls.


Thanks for calling past, hope you can join in again this month........Now on with the Hop..................Therese.
