i pieced the cupcake together (it's a Starving Artist's stamp... totally love it!) after i used a couple of papers from the DCWV Spring Glitter Stack for the different parts. i used the shiny lacquer on the cheery, and i added dimensionals behind the icing part to make it "pop!"
the ribbon is from Costco (who would've thunk?) and i got it for wrapping Christmas gifts knowing that i could just ask my siblings and parents for the ribbon back so i could "re-use" it. seriously, Costco has GREAT ribbon... and this roll was double sided (pink/ black), wire edged, and FIFTY YARDS LONG! (how am i ever going to use it all? ...well, make 12 matching cupcake cards (: haha)
it was really funny, i showed my dad this card, and he said, "i like how the icing comes out." haha, thanks dad!
i'll be posting other cards soon--i just spent Monday of spring break stamping with my co-worker and friend, Helene at Impress Stamps in Tukwila... boy, was that fun!
