Anyone for cake?

It's been a really horrible day weather-wise here, rain lashing down and so windy it knocked over my tub of runner beans. So different from the last few days of gorgeous hot, sunny weather. I was thinking of the lovely ice cream (whippy 99 cone - yum!) that I had on Monday when we went to Anglesey for the day so I thought I'd make a nice cheery card with ice creams on.

While we were at Anglesey we called in at Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, well you can't go there and not visit can you, it would be rude! Can't say we were impressed though. But we did learn that Llanfairpwll or LlanfairPG (as it's known on the island) actually means "The church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio's of the red cave". If you want to impress your friends you can learn how to pronounce it here.

So, here's my card. Actually, I thought they were ice creams but apparently they're cupcakes!

I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:
I love Promarkers #21 - Stripes
Crafty Creations # 74 - Ice cream and cakes
Lexi's Creations # 17 - Layers/3D

For this card I've used:
Cream coloured 5" x 7" card base
Stripey and sprinkles DP are from Summer Driggs Sweet Cakes set
Digi image is Meljen's freebie Triple Treat Cupcake, printed twice so that I could layer up the cupcakes, coloured with Promarkers and the red hearts coloured with a Sakura glaze pen
Sentiment is a freebie but I can't remember where from, sorry
Blue mat and blue scalloped frame are from DCWV Brights stack and the frame has been cut with Nellie Snellen's rectangle multiframe die
Glitter from stash
