Anya's Sophisticat Creative Inspiration Mojo Cupcake

Another multiple challenge; starting with another fab sketch at Mojo Monday where one can opt for a circular or square design.  Anyone for Anya wanted "something completely different".  The whole monotone theme is a new experience for me but I wanted to try to "say it in sepia" as per the challenge over at Creative Inspirations.   Now I'm pretty sure that I haven't used this little Miss Anya yet so she is different for a start but pretty much everything on this card, except for the Cardworks candy, has not been used before.    I used a new Cuttlebug folder and "embossed" the centre panel in accordance with the requirements at Sophisticat this week - and I used chalks on it too which is new.  I also used some pre-embossed special papers which I found in my stash whilst having a rummage.  The houndstooth background is a new stamp not previously inked (and not actually mounted yet) and I have also used my new Stampin Up sentiment.  The card is for my "friend" Sarah for the Cupcake Craft challenge and even though she has been a friend for a very long time, it is completely different for me to actually make her a birthday card!
Post-script:  I just realised what terrible quality my photo was and so I have reposted it.

I would be delighted to receive such a beautiful card and I think your friend will be too. There is so much on it that I like that if I listed it, you'd need a cup of tea to drink with this comment!
Would you like detructions for the fancy fold flowers? If so, let me know and I'll write some. (It may take me a while to get to it, but I will!)
