Try My Quirky Cup Cakes?

Evening ! It's That Quirky Time again... every two weeks we have a quirky challenge. This fortnight we're sponsored by Limited Runs and Paper Pretties so that means more prizes!
It's Cazzy's turn to set the theme and she wants to see...
on your creations! The Quirkier the better!!
So here's mine! I chose to use this Ladybug Swirl cup cake from Limited Runs and as I said over on the Quirky Blog, my link leads to loads of lovely cup cakes and I know I put on at least 12lbs just looking at them!!
The Card. I started by edging a plain pearl card with red Poppy Promarker, (all the red under lay is card edged with Promarker) Printed out about four cup cakes, coloured them, cut one out with a Scalloped circle Nestie and cut the others up to do a bit of 3D-ing. The icing and the ladybirds.
I've used, freebie paper, the red gingham is from or a bit darker HERE but sorry, the cup cakes were freebies, but are now 99p for the set, download from Paper Craft's Inspiration Magazine HERE (and it took me ages to find them too!) Never mind get over there anyway and save this month's freebies they are fabulous!
Where was I? Oh yes, I just kept adding anything that matched up with the colours or went well with my Ladybird cup cake... even to adding party backing paper to the back of the card, although why I added buttons...? Maybe it was just their colour or I was thinking Chocolate buttons!!
The paper flowers were from a freebie card LMC making set from Crafts Beautiful, bought via Tesco's this month. The large ladybird brad is from a set by Forever Friends ...or ...might be from Pepper and Friends... the rest is from my stash. The two wooden ladybirds were stuck to tiny pegs, but I wrenched them off with a pair of glue ruined scissors!
The Font is a freebie it's called Denne Kitten Heels and you can download that HERE or just Google the name.
As you can see by the picture, I couldn't help but add Mad Madison with her axe to the inside of this card!
That's it for now, except I've just noticed blogger telling me I've used up 97% of my allotted blog space...what happens when I reach 100%?? Scarrry!!! Anyway, pop over to Quirky Crafts and join in. Also, if you use Limited Runs Digital images join in their Gallery Challenge HERE.
This is on Timer, I'm not here, so I'll add challenges later, we're having tea with Lady Pam.... hope we all don't break her new little table!!!*
