I made this adorable little cupcake card for Sugar Nellie's 2nd birthday cupcake challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. You can't tell from the photo, but the little cupcake on the cupcake card has glittery sprinkles on the top. I colored in the Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl stamp with my Prismacolor pencils and paper pieced her dress with some paper from The Angel Company. The mini cupcake and "Happy Birthday" stamps are both retired stamps from The Angel Company.
I used my Cuttlebug embossing folders to get the two different textures on the cupcake card. I found this cute cupcake card template over at Outside the Lines blog.
For this card I chose a different fold (the Gate Fold Card) from my everyday card to participate in the DP2 Challenge this week, Fancy Fold Card". On the DP2 challenge it was also suggested we get out of embellishments we've been saving. So, I thought it was a great time to use some of these cute see through, sparkly buttons I've had in my collection for close to 2 years! The stamp I used is Mo Manning's digital stamp, "Shire". I simply looooove horses, so when I saw this stamp I just had to have it! I colored it in with my Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol.
I chose these colors to play along with The Play Date Cafe this week. Their challenge was to use these colors:
I had a great time doing something crafty this weekend! It sure beat last weekend when I was sick with the swine flu! I would love to hear what you think of my cards - comments make my day! :) Thanks for looking!
