Don't know about you but I thought if someone gave me this gorgeous cupcake I couldn't possible eat it!!!!  I'd just sit and look at it with a silly smile on my face........Isn't it amazing!




As you can see I couldn't get past the cupcake and made a CAS card using Hero Arts - Sparkle Clear: Cupcakes. This little pack includes some gems in pretty colours so two of them were added either side of the sentiment.

Smooth White card for the 4.25" x 5.5" top fold card.  
Two strips of pink card, die cut with Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Scallop die came next.  Wrapping some matching ribbon over the top and just easing the top scallops up for added dimension.
Three cupcakes stamped  to the card base and coloured with Prisma pencils. A fourth cupcake was cut by hand and popped over the centre one.  The sentiment, stamped in Versafine onyx black ink with a gem adhered to either side to finish the card off.

Thanks for calling past, enjoy the rest of the hop.................

Fabulous cas design Sue, such perfect balance. I agree I would have trouble eating this cupcake, but I don't think it would win in the end.

I know what you mean about that cupcake - I'm sure I wouldn't be able to bite into such a masterpiece. Love your masterpiece too - especially the bling and of course the scallops are always a winner for me.
