Cuttlebug Meets Cupcake Challenge #24

Head on over to the Cuttlebug Challenge blog for their weekly challenge! This week's challenge is all about cupcakes, and you know I love those. :)

Here is my entry. You can't tell very well from this angle, but it's a card.
I free hand drew the cupcake bottom on corrugated cardboard and cut it out. I tore the top off of it so it looked like a cupcake liner, slapped some white paint on it and covered the wet paint with glitter. IRL, it's very sparkly!
The cupcake top was free handed on plain pink cardstock. I took the page of an old book and tore a few patches out. I glued them to the cardstock and then took a piece of pearly vellum that I Cuttlebugged with Swiss Dots and layered it over the top. I stitched around the vellum and cardstock to stick them together and distressed the edges.
Then I simply stuck on puffy American Crafts white Thickers and used my Signo pen on black cardstock for the "you" and "are" labels.

I finished it off with some old raffia that I unwrapped at the ends so it looks like a bow. In reality, it's just tied with a knot.
Thanks for looking!
