Morning everyone, Here's my take on Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 249, sponsored by Doodle Pantry. The challenge photo inspired me to make a birthday card for my great nephew who will turn a year old on March 1. I combined two Doodle Pantry sets, A Tweet Hello and Winter Birthday, to create my birdie cupcake. The sentiment is from another DP set, Birdie Birthday Color Plus. After paper piecing the cupcake's liner and candle, I added lots of glitter to the icing, colored the flame with Copics, and sponged around the flame with Daffodil Delight ink to create the glow. I also got to play with some new dies from Taylored Expressions. Nothing like some new toys to get your mojo working!
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Cards Galore Encore Challenge #2 -- Add a gem, glitter, Candy or any bling you fancy (I used lots of glitter.)
