Celebrations Cupcake - BBTB2 Challenge

Happy Monday Friends!
Did you miss me? LOL! I've been working massive amounts of hours lately and honestly don't have the umph or creativity to do what I love best.....create cards. It just so happened that I made this card for one of my special Etsy customers recently and guess what...it fits this week's BBTB2 challenge!

This week the very talented and oh so SWEET Ms. Carole Beath asked us to use the cupcake from the Cricut Celebrations cartridge. Page 101 of the manual.
I was asked to make this card in shades of purple, so off I went to my giant paper supply searching of just the right purple combos. Who doesn't love polka dots! Huh?
My customer requested this quote on the card, so I created it using my Printmaster program. I cut it out with my Nesties.
The cupcake is loaded with clear rhinestones and lots of Martha Stewart glitter on the bottom layer. Lastly I added some yummy velvet along the bottom and topped it off with a big ole satin bow. Oh, and one more thing I did for a little extra visual fun is to pop up every other one of the "pleats" in the cup cake cup. Of course you can see it better in real life!
I hope you've enjoyed my card today and can play along with us over at Bitten By The Bug 2. Be sure to pop over and take a look at all the wonderful creations the other designers put together. These ladies are AMAZING!
I'm so sorry for being a bad blogger, but for now my "real job" has got all of my attention. I'm in hope of a lesser work schedule once they get some more people hired. Fingers crossed for now! THANKS for visiting me and not giving up on me! HUGS for now and until next time, have a lovely day!

Pin It!
