Create a Cupcake

Yet another beautiful day.  Did you all remember to put your clocks forward?   I did but I don't think my grandson did.  We had a family night last night so little man stayed here rather than be woken at a late hour to go home.  Nan only got 6 hrs sleep, thanks

I've finally managed to make the first of the 8 cards I need for this week. This ones got to go to Plymouth so it needed to be done first. Its one for our friends daughters birthday on Thursday so needs to be posted tomorrow. We haven't seen them for ages so I wasn't really sure what she is into so played safe with the cupcake set. Next decisions was what colours to go with!!!!! I finally decided on two of the In Colours for 2012/13 with Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade.  I punched out 1" circles to make a fake embossed look. This is the finished product....

Now whilst I liked what I had done I thought something was missing so I decided to add some Pearls to the little flowers but that didn't look right either.  I then swapped some Pearls with some Rhinestones and asked hubby what he thought and, like me, preferred the Rhinestones so all the Pearls were duely swapped and this is the end result...

I think I looks much nicer.  I also like to put inserts into my cards whenever I can so I decided to stamp a cupcake on that as well.
I hope you like my project, please leave a comment if you did as I love to read them.
