SCIC #3 - Yummy Color Challenge

I was really running out of time to participate in the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge, but the colors were so yummy, I couldn't resist! Better late than never, right?

I needed to create a thank you card, so why not give a paper cupcake? All the yumminess without the calories!

The cupcake was created using paper piecing. I used the Trio Flower punch to create the flowers, sponged and curled the edges, and punched a small circle for the flower center with the Crop-o-dile. The cupcake bottom was stamped and then crimped to give it more texture. And I added red glitter for the candle flame.

Stamps: Wagon Full of Fun, Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Perfect Plum, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, Sweet Pea DSP; Ink: Basic Black, So Saffron; Accessories: Sponge, 2-way glue pen, Crimper, Trio Flower punch, Scallop Trim punch, Modern Label punch, Word Window punch, Crop-o-dile, Elegant Eggplant ribbon, Fine Galaxy glitter.

Thanks for stopping by!
