Happy Glossy Cupcakes

Happy Wednesday!  It's a gorgeous day here today, hope it's been fine where you are.

I'm feeling very pleased with myself as I love the result on this card.  I've made it with the Friday Mashup challenge in mind.  This week it's Sweet as a Button.  You can use a button/s on your project or a cupcake or a mash up and use both.

I've reached for On a Pedestal stamp set.  I stamped the little cake in Not Quite Navy onto Very Vanilla then again in Pacific Point.  I cut out the Pacific Point icing and attached with a Dimensional.  I covered the icing in Crystal Effects and added a swirl of silver string.  The Very Vanilla panel was mounted onto Not Quite Navy and then mounted onto Blueberry Crisp Designer Paper.  I made a tag using the Decorative Label Punch and Crumb Cake.  "Happy" was inked in Pacific Point on Very Vanilla and cut out, then mounted the same as the main panel.  I added some Very Vanilla ribbon and a Real Red button dressed with a little silver thread.  The word Happy was also covered with Crystal Effects.  The card base is Crumb Cake.

Best go and check on the dinner, enjoy your evening! x

Hi Aileen, Love the shape and colour of your cupcakes, I really like how different they are (not really a cupcake fan here!) I also like the way you've placed your sentiment vertically. It's always good to see an old friend of the Friday Mashup playing along with us. Cheers,
