Sweet Inspiration

My first card as a Design Team member for Tuesday Throwdown Challenge. Our sponsor is My Grafico. To make this card I used one of the eight cupcake images from their 

I used the digital image three times, and printed it on different designer papers. All of the papers for the cupcakes are CTMH...from my stash. The pretty cupcake background paper is from Michael's. I used my Singer to stitch, stitch, stitch.

The little candles are "lit" with Stickles glitter glue. The sprinkles are also done with Stickles. 

I used dimensional adhesive dots to attach the cupcake "layers". The flowers are from my stash also...can't remember where they come from! Sorry...

The ribbon is my fave...CTMH black and white Gingham. 

I am entering this card in several challenges:
Hooked on Crafts - Let's Celebrate!
House of Gilli - Add A Sentiment
Lexi's Creations - Sparkle and Shine
Paper Pretties - Anything Goes
Stamp and Create - Stitch it Up
Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Add Some Flowers
Whoopsie Daisy - Anything Goes
Corrosive Challenge Blog - Birthday

The sentiment is from H & M Stamps, which is no longer in business. I designed a few sets for them in 2008.

So head on over to Tuesday Throwdown and join the challenge...

Have a sweet day,
