Cupcake with Cherry on Top

Thank you so much to everyone who left a comment on my Chocolate Bunnies. You sure know how to make my day. =)

Anyway, here's a card that I made for Lauren Meader of My Time... weekend sketch challenge couple of weeks ago. I really like the card that she created for this sketch and wanted to use some of patterned paper that I used from my previous card. It's so hard for me to throw some of the scraps especially patterned paper, and these scraps are so perfect for Lauren's sketch.

Cupcake is from Michael's $ bin and was stamped on Whisper White card stock with Staz-on Jet Black ink and stamped again on the same Polka Dot patterned paper to use as a cupcake liner. Water-colored the icing with Pretty in Pink classic ink and topped with faux dew drops (yes, got this idea from Lauren also) as a cherry. Layered with 1 1/2 circle punch Chocolate Chip card stock, adhered it on 2" x 2 1/2" Whisper White card stock and layered it again with Chocolate Chip card stock. Both Patterned Paper is from Paper Marcella by K and finished it with Chocolate Chip satin ribbon and Chocolate Chip photo corner with faux dew drops. I have another card using the same cupcake for tomorrow, so be sure to come and visit again. Have a great day!

Stamps: Cupcake from Michael's $ bin

Ink: Jet Black Staz-on

Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip from Stampin' Up and Patterned Paper from Paper Marcella by K

Accessories: Photo Corner Punch, 1 3/8 and 1 1/2 circle punch, chocolate chip satin ribbon and faux dew drops

Love the card, love the colors, love the cupcakes. Cupcakes are hot right now aren't they!! Kids at school talk about Lulemon, Roxy, Billabong etc. but they have nothing on cupcakes!
