A sweet cupcake challenge for A La Card Monkey #104

There's a great sketch I made for A La Card Monkey for you this week for Challenge #104: Cupcakes! Cupcakes are all over the place - in movies, on TV, on tables at farmers' markets and little shops around town. So the challenge to you this week is to create a cupcake card using the sketch at the bottom of this post.

I wanted my cupcake to look bright and cheery and ready for a party! I used the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set, stamping on card stock and Big Top Birthday dsp, then cutting out the parts and adhering them with dimensionals over a 2-1/2" Real Red circle that I faux stitched around using a paper piercer and white gel pen. The sentiment is from the Sweet Cake set in the Occasions Mini. There are only a couple more weeks to buy from that mini, so if you want something, buy it NOW before it's gone. I added mini silver brads on either side of the Modern Label punched greeting.

Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes, Sweet Cake;
Ink: Tempting Turquoise marker, Basic Black pad;
Paper: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie;
Accessories: Tasteful Trim die, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder; dimensionals, 2-1/2" circle punch, paper piercer, mat pack, Modern Label Punch, mini silver brads.
