CIC15 - A Cherry on Top

Oh the yummyliciousness of this delightful cupcake.  I just want to sink my teeth into that sweet, creamy goodness and that juicy cherry on top looks so delightful.

Hope picked out a really great cupcake for this weeks challenge.  I love how refreshing it look with those bright colors and that pretty pastel pink frosting.  So this week I chose to go with cupcakes for my card.

I decided to use the row of cupcakes from the new SU Hostess set, (The More The Merrier) and paired it with the cupcake sentiment from, (Sweet Little Sentiments).  I had found a card on Joan's Blog here: that I really liked and decided to use some of her idea/layout on my card.  I really liked how she used a border set to create her focal point so I went with that idea and stamped the row of cupcakes with Real Red, Summer Sun, Green Galore and Pixie Pink on Whisper White card stock.  I added a small border of Real Red cs and some bright green ric-rack and then mounted it on Apricot Appeal card stock.  I used some designer paper from DCWV that I've had for ages.  I thought the fun colored striped made a good match for the pretty colors of the inspiration cupcake's wrapper.  Next up I stamped an individaul cupcake from the row (the one with the Cherry On Top) and colored it with Prismacolor pencils and added some sparkle to the cherry with glitter (Art Institute).  I mounted this with foam tape as well as my row of cupcakes.  I decided to put my sentiment on the image panel rather then underneath as Joan did on her card. 

Be sure to stop by Hope's blog and check out the other great cards and she has a cupcake challenge team now called the, Sweeties who will be posting every week so you don't want to miss that.
