Birthday Cupcakes!

Hello Friends! I played along with the Meljen’s Design Challenge again.  This time, we were given a sketch. I really enjoy working with Meljen’s digital images. They are so fun and whimsical. Here is my take on the challenge.  I used the Birthday Cupcake. Meljen’s has quite a collection of cupcakes and they are so cute! I always print two images, so this time I’m sharing both cards. The cards are 5x5, a little larger than my usual A2 cards. Click on the images for a larger view.

 Here is the sketch:

And here are my cards:

 I used Sweet Mango card stock as my base for this card. It reminds me of Rainbow Sherbet!

Here is a close-up view of all that yummy sparkle! I added lots of glitter and rhinestones.


I used a Java card stock base for this one. It reminds me of a devil's food cake.

Lots of food references today...I must be hungry! :) That’s all folks! Thanks for stopping by!
