Cupcakes Three by Three


I made this card a couple of days ago for the MFT mid month release challenge, to use three of something. I used three cupcakes and three designer papers. Well, this card made yesterday a "happy" day. First I won the challenge and the $15 MFT gift coupon. Then I received an email that my card had been included in a slide show in article about My Favorite Things stamps and it's owner, Kim. How exciting is that! If you would like to read the article written my Michelle Vocke for the on-line magazine Examiner.com to here.

The cupcakes liners are pieced, colored with Copics,  and the middle cupcake is popped up for some dimension. There is glitter on the frosting. Although I made the card below for the sketch challenge, I used the sketch again I liked it so much! Added some machine stitching, ribbon, lace, and some cherry rhinestones to finish it off. 

Have a good day!
Melody
