A Royal Case of Cupcakes

The featured stamped challenge this week was to case JulieHRR and I couldn't let it pass without participating in the challenge. Julie is such a great cardmaker. I love her clean, simple cards, that always have such character.

I chose this card to use as inspiration. We were to change at least two things.

The changes I made were to...

Used different stamps
Made a traditional card rather than pull/out
Added layers, punching, brads and piercing


I colored the cupcakes, from Cupcakes A La Yummy, with Koh-i-noor pencils and cut them out. the background is sponged with Regal Rose ink. I used the Friskars Threading Water punch on the Very Vanilla and Basic Black layers.

Thanks for looking!

I hope your Friday is a happy one!
