So Charming and Inspired

Here is the photo for the inspiration for my card.  It is for a challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room
Now here is my card.  It is full of these beautiful colors in the photo inspiration and also contains a sweet little charm.

This little card is for a friend to express a big thank you for being such a good friend with such a big heart.  I cannot remember what cartridge I used to cut the frame from.  I used the Gypsy Wanderings to cut the cupcake.  The base mat was embossed with a heart folder and then inked with a darker shade of pink chalk.   The photo makes the card appear to be more orange than pink.  But actually the colors are just the same as the inspiration photo.   The patterned papers are all from the My Mind's Eye Summer Song stack.  This is such a happy stack of papers.  I have so enjoyed using them. I added a sweet little butterfly charm from my stash and a little tag that is from  Studio 112, (dollar bin at JoAnn's).  The entire set of tags is really cute.  And of course the card would not be complete without some sweet, and pretty ribbon.
