Holly Cupcake

Im back and feeling much better this morning! I made this quick card before we head out the door for our last football game. After the game we are going to a local arts and crafts fair.

As soon as I seen the OCC challenge this morning I knew I had to use my Treehouse Christmas cupcake image. Since I used a cupcake image I decided to use Taylors cupcake sketch challenge for my layout.

I colored the cupcake using gamsol magic. I also used the copic cool gray no1 marker for shadows. I pulled out some dp and textured cs from last Christmas I got from Walmart. I cant remeber the name of it! I added silver sheer ribbon and silver brads for embellishments.


Heres a peek at the inside of the card too...

I love this sentiment!!

Recipe:
Stamps: Christmas cupcake
Ink: versafine onyx
Paper: PTI white, christmas stack from Walmart
Other: prismacolor pencils, gamsol, copic cool gray no1 marker, silver sheer ribbon, silver brads, scallop border punch, paper piercer, white gel pen, cropadile

Oh my goodness!! I love the Christmas cupcake image! Your coloring, papers, and layout are so perfect, too - bold, but still let the main image take stage. Love the sentiment!
