Cupcake Friday


Here's a card for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #9. Thanks to my friends Janice and Janette for sending me samples of the new Papertrey colors and the Hero Arts cupcake images!! I love these little cupcakes, and the new Papertrey colors are beautiful!!...especially the berry sorbet!! I think I *MUST* order it!

Do you see my BIG OOPS?? Do you remember that Sesame Street game...one of these things is not like the other. Well, can you guess? Yep, the square panel in the lower right corner. The designer paper was running the wrong direction when I stamped the sentiment. {sigh} LOL at myself!

Ramblings about the card: I took a 5.25 x 10.5 piece of CS and folded it in half to get a 5.25" square card. The circles are up on dimensionals. I watercolored the pink icing with SU pretty in pink ink. The foil cups and hearts were colored with prisma pencils. I used baby oil and stumps to blend the pencils. I used a Sakura sparkle pen to add some glitter to the sprinkles.
