Dirty Cupcakes


Well, that doesn't sound very appetizing, does it? But the challenge is! It's Taylor's Dare to Get Dirty Challenge for today and we had to use....cupcakes in our card (of course because Taylor is all about cupcakes)! I pulled out all the cupcake stuff I had (which was surprisingly a lot). I ended up with this design because of the ribbon. That was my inspiration today. I matched up this patterned paper from Basic Grey's Cupcake and the pink pirouette and riding hood red from SU. The big cupcake, from Inkadinkadoo, was colored with copic markers. The pink frosting was stamped on scrap, colored and cut out. I didn't put it on dimensionals, but paper pieced it because it gave it more dimension. The jimmies were colored with copics, then I went over them with Spica glitter pens. The "Enjoy Your Day" image from Riveting was altered in the middle with the cupcake from Short and Sweet. I just stamped it on scrap, punched it with the 3/4" punch, and put it up on a dimensional. I added dew drops (again!) to that image and in each corner of the card (love them!). I used Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday #46 sketch (I thought it was this week's sketch, but it was from a couple of weeks ago!). I think this is a cute "girlie" birthday card. I only wish the cucakes on the ribbon were going in the other direction! Oh well, thanks for lookin'!

Well your cupcake may be dirty but it sure is cute, too. I love those dewdrops. They almost look like gumdrops. :) Darling card.
