Triple Choc Cupcake mmmm

Morning and as it's the 15th I have 4 DT posts today and this should be the last one hopefully.This card is for the midway inspiration and reminder for the ATG challenge at Love To Scrap and I chose Triple Choc Cupcake precoloured image from one of our sponsors Limited Runs,as it is precoloured I just added lots of glossy accents.Now I have had this image about a month and mojo and ideas where absolutely NIL,then two days before I was just to post it and panicking our future DILs mother had some bad news healthwise,I it came to me that she always called buns-stickys so there was my sentiment and ideal image for a thinking of you"just because" card and the whole thing came together in a flash -so this card was definitely meant for her and she loves it thankfully.Papers are Docrafts,cardstock from Papermill Direct,sentiment was computer generated in Dafont and the clock faces(with added glossy accents) are from a Debbie Moore CD not sure but think it was a Steampunk one.Tattered Lace and Sizzix dies.
