WSB Cupcake Card Challenge

The celebration is nearly over at Whimisical Scraps & Bugs. It was one year ago this month that the challenge blog started and I am so excited that it is still going strong. The final challenge for October's blog-iversary celebration is up, so hop on over and take a look! We would all love to see what you come up with too as this latest challenge is definitely a cool one!

For this particular DT challenge, Cindy told us all to use cupcakes, make a card, and of course, incorporate our Cricuts somehow. I used my mini mongrams cart to cut scallop circles at both 1 1/2" & 2" to make the "icing" on my cuppie. I then inked the edges and ran them through my cuttlebug using the divine swirls folder. I also used my pop dots to give the icing lots of dimension. I free hand cut the cupcake base and ran that through my cuttlebug as well using the swiss dots folder. I inked all the other edges with coffee ink by StampCraft and the cardstock is Bazzill while the patterned paper is Making Memories. The ribbon is from my stash, but I believe it is Offray. The cute little cherry is one of my vintage buttons that I adhered using some industrial strength adhesive of my hubby's and then I just attached a little fiber for the stem.

This was such a fun little challenge and I am so blessed to be on such a great DT with so many other sweet and talented scrappers. I hope you get a chance to hop on over to WSB and see all the other card creations the DT came up with, as well as play along on our next challenge! Happy Scrapping!
