Cupcake Celebrate You Card

Happy Tuesday! It's time for Team B to provide inspiration at Tuesday Throwdown and this week our theme is TREATS. One of my favorite treats is a cupcake, or a cookie, basically any baked treat will make me happy. Our sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish and I had a lot of fun using her Cupcake with Leaf image. Click here to check out the challenge and design team inspiration.

Since Fall is right around the corner, I decided to us warm colors on this Cupcake Celebrate You Card. When I bake cupcakes I like to use patterned paper liners, so I knew I wanted to paper piece that part of the cupcake. Harvest plaid paper by Reminisce seemed like a good choice. I colored the image with Copic markers and then fussy-cut and popped up the little flower. Using a stitched circle steel die cut by My Favorite Things the image was centered and cut. I matted the circle with a Soft Suede cardstock by Stampin' Up!. Using the same plaid paper I layered it onto an Olive card and then added a layer of polka dots by Bo Bunny along with a strip of patterned paper by American Crafts. The sentiment from the Birthday Blossoms set by Stampin' Up! was stamped with StazOn Timber Brown ink. Five peach toned pastel dots were added for some sparkle and the final touch was a little clear Wink of Stella on the flower. That about sums it up.

We would love for you to join our TREATS challenge this week at Tuesday Throwdown. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
