Yes, I know! This card is super, super simple. I think I'm going to go back and add some twine around the middle border. I based this card off of the Clean and Simple Sketch #123 from this past week and the colors were inspired by Jay Gee's Nook Challenge #3.
I pulled out some of my glittered paper and used the dies that match this set to cut out the frosting layers. The base of the cupcake was made with some old patterned paper that I had. The polka dots were kind of an off white, so I took a yellow copic and colored them to match the pink & yellow theme. I added a cherry at the top of the cupcake, but I'm not sure it actually looks like a cherry, more like a button with a string sticking out of it, lol!!
The yellow polka dotted piece was made with a Quickutz Embossing Folder. After I embossed the piece, I turned it around so that the embossed side isn't showing and instead you see the impressed side.
I also wanted to tell you about a fun blog hop coming up next week! I am again going to be participating in the 2nd Annual "March of the Snowmen" blog hop on Tuesday, January 25th! If you enjoy snowmen, be sure to check this out!
There will be prizes a long the way and I'm going to have a a little blog candy up for grabs!! Here's a little hint on what I'll be offering:
