All Dressed Up - Challenge #12 - MONOCHROME

Hello, my friends!

I'm back again with another new post for you!

Today begins a new challenge at All Dressed Up.
Our theme for this challenge is *Monochrome.*
For my card for this challenge I used the image called "A Little Me Time", 
which you can find in the All Dressed Up Shop right HERE.

Can you tell I had lots of fun playing with this one?
Using my Cricut I created a little scene card. 
Taking a cue from the little sign on the table that reads "tea & cakes" I added some little cupcakes and a teapot to the shop window. The little cupcake in the image has a sweet butterfly treat on the top, so I also added butterflies to my cupcakes.
The cupcakes are frosted with stickles, and the teapot is covered with a coat of Glossy Accents to look like pretty china. 
Then I gave that sweet puppy his very own cupcake to enjoy!
I think I'll have to include a Tim Horton's gift card for the recipient of this card!
