Yummy Cupcake


Thanks for your help yesterday helping me decide which card to link to Julee's Mojo challenge. I think the Wedding card won but the Grillfella was a close second.

I love cupcakes! I made this card awhile ago, but a friend brought it up that I should post it. I am in a monthly swap group on SCS, and it is the best swap group ever! I always try to make my best cards for my group! The challenge for June was to use red, white and blue. I used SU!'s Ruby Red, Ballet Blue, and white. The stamp is by Inkadinkado. I did my first paper piecing with the wrapper of the cupcake. The background is embossing with the swirls cuttlebug folder. The frosting is paper glaze and the dew drops are from Chris. The ribbon is from Joann's. Piercing all those holes took FOREVER, but that's ok. We are off to tee ball and we are hosting my Mom's retirement dinner tonight. I hope everyone has an enjoyable Saturday!
