The challenge theme is to make a card or project using something sweet: candy, cookies, ice cream…CAKE!!
I've used some images from the Make A Wish set by Jessica Knutsen. For the cupcake I stamped the cupcake bottom onto vellum and then used my score board on the lines so I could fold them and add dimension. For the top I used Liquid Applique to make some fluffy icing and then popped on a few seed and bugle beads for sprinkles. I probably didn't need to add a candle since this is a thank you card, but I wanted to try my hand at a rolled paper candle so it got one anyway. :-)
As a special treat, for our birthday celebration, the random winner of this challenge will receive a $15GC as a prize!!
