Cupcake DT, challenges, panic LOL:-)

Hello all! I hope you had a nice sunny weekend? It was very hot in Paris! And I just did not have time to enjoy the sun... I have this sort of panic feeling, just because me and my little family are supposed to leave on Saturday morning for 2 1/2 weeks, and I am going to work late every day of the week and I have a million things to do, so I am just wondering how I will manage... I guess I will, eventually, one way or the other! 
Anyway, today is Cupcake day! We have another great challenge for you, chosen by our lovely Louise this time, and it is "Cooking up a Storm", so anything cooking related! Our sponsor is Baby Bud Designs, who are offering 2 digis of the winner's choice and it is also your last chance to try and win our June prize, sponsored by Little Claire Designs!
Bonjour à toutes! J'espère que vous avez passé un bon week-end? Pas beaucoup le temps de profiter du soleil pour moi, je panique un peu... Je pars en vacances samedi pour 2 semaines 1/2 avec toute ma petite famille et je me demande bien comment je vais tout gérer... J'y arrive toujours, me direz-vous, certes mais je panique quand même! 
Assez bavardé, c'est l'heure du nouveau challenge de Cupcake et cette semaine Louise souhaiterait vos projets en rapport avec "la cuisine" (gâteaux, chefs, etc...). Nous sommes sponsorisés par Baby Bud Designs qui offre 2 digis au choix et toujours par notre sponsor du mois de juin, Little Claire Designs.
Here is my card...

Who said witches are to be used only for Halloween? Close up and recipe:-)

Stamps: Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy (Witches Cauldron) - Kraftin' Kimmie (Love Potion) and Whimsy Stamps
Distress Inks (Spun Sugar and Milled Lavender)
DPs: Docrafts and Carolees Creations (I think)
Spellbinders dies: Circles, Heart Circles, Elegant Posts
Gems from stash
For the background I used DI Spun Sugar first, then Milled Lavender to get the shade I wanted. The swirls are from the Spellbinders set called Elegant Posts, I used several from the set and cut some pieces to get the designs I wanted. My image has been stamped twice and I used 3D foam for more dimension. And I used the fab sketch from the Sugar Bowl (see below for challenges):-)
Pour le fond, j'ai donc utilisé un mélange d'encres Distress, les swirls viennent du set Spellbinders Elegant Posts, j'en ai utilisé plusieurs, que j'ai coupés pour obtenir un motif qui me convenait, et mon image est montée sur mousse 3D (toujours une empreinte pour le fond, une pour le coloriage). Et j'ai utilisé le super sketch du Sugar Bowl pour ma carte (voir challenges ci-dessous).

Last picture and challenges...

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
The Sugar Bowl - #62 Marlene's great sketch (rotated)
Stampin' for the Weekend - #11 My Favourite Things (purple and black, and I love witches!)
Little Darlings - #2 Favourite colour combo (purple and black, one of my several favourites)
Paper Sundaes - #75 Sundae Bar - use at least 2 of the toppings (I used purple and gems)

  27. Coucou Delphine,
    Waouhhh ta carte est trop belle... Ces couleurs sont tellement bien choisies et ça flash. J'adore ! Magnifique le fond distressé. On ne ressent pas ton "stress" dans tes cartes en tout cas :-)))Quant à la "panique", comme tu dis, au final, tu arrives toujours à tout faire, mais je suis un peu comme toi: dire que je "panique" parce que je vois le nombre de choses que j'ai à faire, ça me permet d'évacuer le stress et de foncer. Là tu es à la moitié de la semaine. Plus que deux jours et tu y es !!!!!!!! Je te souhaite de belles vacances, beaucoup de plaisir en famille, avec ton chéri et vos enfants. A bientôt et on se réjouit de voir tes cartes programmées. Bisous. Francine
    PS: pour moi, samedi prochain, c'est ma première GDT. Et deux autres DT se sont confirmées... ;-)
