Two Cupcake challenges!

This card is my entry for both this weeks Our Creative Corner challenge and Cupcake Craft challenge. The challenges were to use a photograph they provided of a cupcake as inspiration for designing your card, and the other was to use spots and dots! So here is what I came up with!


This didn't turn out quite as I'd planned. I was wanting it to be very plain, and although it is still quite plain, it's not quite as much as I had originally planned. I embossed the circle using my nestabilites onto the base CS. As I thought it was too basic looking I added pink ink and glitter. The spotty paper is from papermania and cut into a circle with my nestabilities. The cupcake image is one of my new stamps from an Inkadinkado clear set I bought on e-bay. I paper peiced the frosting section with BG sugared paper, glitter added for a bit of sparkle and the paper casing is coloured with my whispers. The 'cherry' on the cake is a 'legless brad' from craftwork cards which I have coated in glossy accents. The adhesive ribbon is from anita's and the sentiment is from a Studio G set.


This card makes a change from all the christmas cards I've been making of late and is very girly and sparkly, my sort of card!

Well friday is finally here, hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, Vicky x
