Saying Goodbye to Autumn

Hello Friends! I have one more Autumn card to share before I start my Christmas card posts...This card features a cute little cupcake from Meljen's Designs, called Autumn Cupcake.  I absolutely adore the cupcakes Melissa creates. Click HERE to see past posts featuring her whimsical cupcake designs.

Now onto today's card share...

Isn't this image cute? I love the leaves in the frosting. Autumn Cupcake is printed on Cryogen White card stock and colored with Copic markers. Nothing fancy here, as far as card design...just letting that cupcake take center stage. In classic Barbara style, I added glitter and gems...a card is not complete with some sort of sparkle!

Here's a little tip: I did not have the color of ribbon I wanted in the size I needed. Soooo...using the chisel end of my Copic marker, I colored my ribbon and made it the color I needed! Gotta love those Copics!
