Hey Cupcake!

Happy Thursday!!!

This week is rolling along quite quickly for me....

Today is my day over on the 365 Cards Blog.

We continue to celebrate KLM Designs Week!

Pam's challenge:

Don't add color to the image, except for one element, which should be glittered. The rest of the image should be a solid color (any color is fine). I want that one element to really pop off the card.

I kept the KLM cupcake image all white...I decided that it would help to make the image POP off of the Speckletone Kraft base. I knew that I wanted the cherry to be the colored/glittered part of the image!

I layered some fabbie ribbon that I picked up at Jennifer Pebbles' garage sale with some PTI polka dot goodness. The button is PTI and the sentiment, A Muse, of course! I had to use silver Martha glitter on the sentiment banner...

Here's a close up of the image...am I cheater pants because I swiss dotted the frosting?

Muwahahaha...

The frosting and the cherry are both fussy cut. I used a dimensional on the frosting piece but just used a glue dot on the cherry.

I hope that you'll join me in the 365 Cards Challenge!!! I can't wait to see what you design!!!

Did you catch my tin from yesterday's post? Today's tin is a recycled watch tin...the lid is the perfect red...

I teamed it up with the delish flocked Making Memories paper {yup, another Jennifer Pebbles buy...}


I didn't want to cover up the flocked goodness on the body of the tin...but added a round MME diecut on the top..it says:

Do not open until the 25th

The striped SU ribbon finishes off the tin that is yet again filled with chocolate!

Tomorrow I'll be sharing my Get Sketchy card along with another Holiday Trunk Show sneak peek...
