Double D - What's in Your Kitchen + Blog Candy

Dear Ones~
All month long over at Double D we are celebrating the blog's 2nd anniversary. In honor of the celebration I will have some blog candy for some lucky winner. Stay tuned to the end of this post.

This time over at Double D we are exploring What's in Your Kitchen. Here's a wonderful mood board for your inspiration.

There are so many possibilities on this mood board. Here's my card:

Now I don't really have any "kitchen" stamps, but we make cupcakes in a kitchen, don't we? So that's what I came up with. Plus the patterned papers have a kitchen theme. The cupcake and greeting are both from the Gina K Designs stamp set called Sweet Thing. I colored the cupcake with Prismas and fussy cut the frosting and wrapper, then glued them on top of a piece of Dark Chocolate card stock for a chocolate cupcake. I added a little glitter to the sprinkles for some mouth watering goodness.

Here are the ingredients:
GKD Ivory Card Stock
Paper Studios Olivia's Sweet Shop Patterned Paper
GKD Sweet Thing Stamp Set 
Prismacolor Pencils
Glossy Accents for the Cherry
Stickles for the Sprinkles
