Cupcake's are Sweet!

Hi Blogger Buddies :)

I had the urge for cupcakes tonight - but as there were none in the house I had to make my own! Instead of the usual butter, sugar, eggs & flour I used some Gemstones cardstock, ribbon, DCWV Nana's Kids DP, Bee charm and some pearls!!!

I'm entering this card into a few challenges....
Cuttlebug Spot - Pink & Green (as their blog)....All elements of the cupcake embossed with various CB folders.
Cute Card Thursday - Dimension........The cupcake is layered and raised down the centre.
Raise The Bar - April Fool......A 'new' style. I very rarely make template cards - in fact I'm sure the last one I made was this cupcake on a birthday card for my daughter's 21st, 1 year ago next week!


  1. Hi Carol,
    I love the effect of the embossing. I gives a depth and texture to the card. This is great work.

  11. Hi Carol! I wanted to let you know that this card made the top 3 at Raise The Bar last week. I apologize for the delayed email, we were out of town for Spring Break. Please let me know if you'd like to join in on this week's challenge or next week's instead. Thank you so much!
