Sweet Cupcakes

The challenge at A Day For Daisies is to make 3 projects. I chose to use these free adorable cupcake images.  Some time ago I bought a crimper but never used it.  I decided to put it to use on the green layer and really like the look of it.  The cupcake is colored with Prismacolor pencils and I used one of my new Parisian Accents dies which I love.  I painted the diecut with gold CI Paint.  The challenge at CI Paint this week is to use your favorite die so be sure to enter for a chance to win some of their awesome shimmery paint.

 My second project is a card.  This is totally different from what I usually do and I'm not too sure I care for it.  The flower is a crocheted flower which is quite dimensional and I didn't think I could use it on a card, but because of the design of the ribbon, it nestled right in the center.  I was happy with that, LOL.  I used a MS punch for the rosette border.

For my 3rd project, I decided to do something a little different and made some cupcake toppers.  These are so much fun to create and now that the cupcakes are gone (served with homemade ice cream!) I stuck them in my houseplants.  Well, they're different, LOL!

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
