Hookedoncrafts 5th Challenge "Sweet Treats"

Well another fortnight has gone by and I have barely had time to rest!
It's that time again for another challenge at Hookedoncraft challenges. 
This fortnight the challenge is called "Sweet Treats."
I have made a cupcake card with a special treat inside!

The top opens up to reveal the special message.

Close up of the stamp and flower embellishments

I have had this idea for quite some time and finally got around to making it happen. I used my Cricut Gypsy to edit an image from the Sweet Treats Cricut cartridge and I used my Cricut expression to cut it out.
I have used a stamp from the soon to be released Birthday Bear stamps from Hookedoncraft

I've coloured the image with my Prisamcolour pencils and used Odourless mineral spirits to blend the colours.
The Rhinestones, Mulbery paper flowers and bud and bow ribbon can also be purchased from Hookedoncraft
I also decorated the heart with micro beads and used stickles on the embossed cupcake top as I just can't resist a bit of sparkle!

Please pop over to the challenge and check out the rest of the Design team cards and be sure to join in the fun.

What a fabulous idea. I have seen a flower pot done the same way but the cupcake looks terrific. hugs jenny

Hello my beautiful Karen, I'm feel slightly better this afternoon, so I thought I'd catch up on some commenting. Your card is amazing. What a fantastic idea. I love every gorgeous detail.
Have a great weekend and thank you for taking on my commenting for me.
