A Day For Daisies Flower Basket Challenge #2

The second challenge at A Day For Daisies is to create something using the theme "Let's Celebrate!" After seeing ADFD's delectable cupcakes, (you can purchase the whole collection or individually, "This & That," in the shop) it wasn't hard to decide what image I would use! I chose "cupcake sprinkles."

Here are the card details:

I used DCWV Citrus cardstock stack and made a 5.5" x 5.5" easel card. Using Nestabilities big scalloped squares (large), I cut a window so that when I use the printed acetate by Momenta (I used "Birthday" for this card) the light can shine through it! I framed the window using teal foil (DCWV Citrus stack) cardstock, embossed with CB 5" x 7" polka dots embossing folder. The "Party" sentiment is Me & My Big Ideas Urban Bling (I bought it at AC Moore for $1).

I printed the image twice; once on Bazzill silver cardstock and once on Beckett Expression Radiance 80 lb cardstock. I cut the cupcake "cup" and scored it using my Scor-It. The "cake" part of the cupcake was run through my Xyron and then covered with a mixture of Stampendous white flock and Doodlebug sugar glitter (in lily white). I pieced the image together and then topped with brightly-colored bugle beads. Once the card was finished, I popped up the image so that it holds the top of the easel card in place.

The sentiment across the lower half of the card is by American Crafts (Rub-on Mini Marks, Celebration Book Two) and I added foil confetti (Mrs. Grossman's sticker confetti).

So please come join in the fun - the challenge deadline is September 30th!
