Fancy a cupcake?

We have a new challenge for you over at Little Miss Muffet today.
We want to see you use doilies and lace please.
Now, I don't use doilies on my cards, I think i've only ever used one once before, and very rarely do I use lace or ribbons either, so this challenge had me a little stumped on how to design my card for today.
One thing I was sure about was that cakes, cream teas etc go hand in hand with doilies, so there was one image that popped into my head straight away; Cupcake Surprise...only here i've used it without the surprise bit! ;)

Mmmmm, chocolate and vanilla buttercream, shall I switch the kettle on? ;)
I've used Echo Park's Beautiful Life papers for this card, the tickets are also from the same collection, I printed them all onto card stock to make them sturdier. Then I pierced the holes to make the tickets look more realistic.
My mom gave me some doilies a few years back, I didn't know if i'd ever use them at the time but I kept them anyway (like most crafters do). The cotton lace at the bottom of my card is a scrap from my ribbons tub, and was just the right size to go across the card :)

To see what the other Little Misses have made with their doilies and lace, please pop over to the challenge blog.
