It's a Cupcake Challenge......and more!

I certainly had the time this weekend to stamp (Lucky Me!!) being as we were so snowed in, so I took on a couple of challenges that some of the girls have on their blogs!

Every Friday Taylor has a cupcake challenge on her blog, that is to make a card with the given sketch and it has to include a cupcake! Just a little twist on a sketch challenge so I jumped right in!

I had my new Cupcakeabella that I bought at the Paper PIckle so I inked her up and paired her with the -oh so very pretty -Gypsy paper by Basic Grey!

I cut her out with the nestabilities oval but it was way toooo big for the sketch so I trimmed off the edges and used her like that!

I added some baby blue stickles to the BIG cupcake and some pretty Verve Visual bling is the cherry on top!!

I bought the fantabulicious! ribbon at the Paper Pickle and threaded it through with the help of the slot punch from Stampin' Up.

The flowers are actually Hero Arts flowers and of course I had to get three packages - some in every colour! Aren't they pretty and bright!

The sentiment is "hey cupcake" by A Muse and it fits perfectly with this image!!

She's too cute, but I hope her mom can get that crazy blue icing out of her dress! LOL!
