My in-laws had their 50th anniversary party last September and instead of a wedding cake they had a cupcake display similar to the one I have posted below. The cupcakes weren't quite as colorful as on my card but they were very tasty!
I used the digi stamp set Sweet Treats and digitally set up the yummy treats below onto the three tiered display.
I colored the image with copics and added a little shimmer and shine with my Sakura clear start pen. You can see more of the shimmer in the photo below. Now who could resist that? Yummmmm!
I cut and embossed the aqua-green frame using Spellbinders Classic Frame and sponged the dark parts with a little darker ink. I cut out three doilies one each out of light pink, dark pink and aqua-green for the 1/2 circles found in the sketch. I cut them off and adhered them to the backside of the frame.
I put a fushia pink ribbon around the bottom and tied a bow - it added just the right touch. I fussy-cut out the image and popped it up on pop-dots to add that 3-D effect that I love so much.
Before I forget, the background paper is new - isn't it great? It's from Wind My Girly Gears. I digitally enhanced the purple background so it's a bigger contrast to the banners. It's very pretty just the way it is but I wanted a brighter contrast for this card.
Thank you for stopping by. I truly appreciate every visit and comment. I LOVE comments! I mean... who doesn't, right? *big grin!*
I have to admit that I'm late on my post and therefore have entered it as a submission in the sketch challenge. You know how life goes... sometimes it gets in the way of creativeness, right? hehe! I hope you will stop by the MTME Pretty Patterns blog and join in the fun! This sketch was so fun to work with! I think you'll love it too! Thanks again for stopping by!
