a little cupcake...


Hey friends!!   Can't believe we are already in the middle of July... time sure does fly by doesn't it?   Despite time flying by rapidly I managed to capture enough of it to make a card for a few challenges:  CASology - cupcake, Color Throwdown, CAS(E) this Sketch and Seize the Birthday.  My niece turned 13 this week and so I will be giving her this card along with some birthday $$$.   I admit that I am not the most innovative or creative cardmaker out there, lol!  I tend to take things very literally when it comes to sketches and that is pretty much what happened with the CTS layout.   No harm in that, right?   Since I wanted to make a card with a cupcake on it I looked at the my stamp sets and realized that cupcakes are sorely lacking in my collection, but I managed to locate the one I used in my PTI Blue Skies stamp set.  It even comes with a cute little cherry!!  Die cut all the pieces using the matching dies and stamped them up with purple and pink inks.  Originally the small rectangle was die cut from white cardstock, but then I decided to switch it out for the black and I like it much better.  After adhering the cupcake bottom to the banner I added some silver metallic thread... that took much longer than anticipated, lol!  After adhering all of that I added the cupcake top and cherry using foam dimensionals.  The piece was adhered to white cardstock die cut using my A Jillian Vance Design rectangle polka dot backdrop die.  Added some pink sequins for and mounted it on some cardstock that matched the purple ink (PTI's Winter Wisteria cardstock and ink).
