New Venture

Friends of ours are opening a new cafe next week, after renovating a house in the centre of Bristol which was the home of the 18th century poet, Thomas Chatterton.  This a completely new venture for the family and I thought I'd make them a card with a 'cafe' theme to wish them 'Good Luck'.   
 The card base was die cut with a Sizzix 'Circle Flip-Its #2' die.  The patterned paper is from a Dovecraft paper stack.  

The cupcake on the reverse of the circle was punched with a SU punch and I embossed the top part with a Cuttlebug 'Tiny Bubbles' embossing folder, before attaching the top part with foam pads.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge ~ Food and Drink
