Build a Cupcake

It's Thursday and time for another Create with Connie and Mary challenge.  We have a Sketch Challenge for you to try today!  Grab your stamps and play along!



I pulled out Build a Cupcake punch that I hadn't used in quite a while as a regular cupcake!  I need birthday cards this time of year! 



Don't those chocolate with white frosting cupcakes look good on the Sweet Shop Designer Paper?  Makes me hungry when I look at it.  I duplicated the cupcake with the Build a Cupcake punch by punching the bottom from Early Espresso and running it thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice folder.  The top was from Whisper White and I added a Red Glimmer Paper cherry on top.  I placed it on a 1 3/4" punched circle of Baja Breeze, then a Whisper White medallion from the Pennant Builder Die.  The Poppy Parade pennant in the background is also from that Pennant die.  I added some Real Red Taffeta Ribbon tied in a bow with an Espresso Glimmer Brad in the center.  The Sweet Shop DSP is layered on Poppy Parade and a base of Baja Breeze.  Along the edge of the Poppy Parade pennant, I added three 1/4" Circles of Red Glimmer paper.  It is hard to see on the DSP, but it shows up much better in real life!


I realized when I went to post about this, that my greeting somehow fell off before it was photographed.  Since I made this card a while ago at the retreat, I have NO idea where it is…and where that little greeting flag went to.  So…you'll have to imagine the words on there!  lol! 


Make sure to check out how the rest of the Challenge Team on Create with Connie and Mary interpreted this sketch!  You can see their designs on Create with Connie and Mary!

Cute way to use the side-ways pennant as a layer. Going to miss this DSP, didn't get to use it much!

What a clever take on the sketch Connie!  I love the use of the pennant die and the texture on your cupcake liner is perfect!
