Double D - 5th Anniversary CUPCAKES

 Dear Ones~

Time for a celebration!!! We are celebrating our 5th year anniversary over at Double D. Congrats to our fearless leaders, Diane and Darlene, for this milestone. And what better to celebrate with than a CUPCAKE!!! Just look at this luscious Mood Board for our inspiration:

And here is my card:

It's been so dreary here in Northern Michigan. If it's December and January you can count on it. So I decided I wanted to make a bright and happy card. I love this patterned paper by Sunny Studios, it just makes me smile. The cupcake is from a stamp set designed by Kristina Werner for Simon Says Stamp. It has several layers.  I stamped the "frosting" on the cupcake in GKD Wild Dandelion, then added the swirls by white heat embossing and finally applying Stickles for sparkle.

The Ingredients:
Recollections Garden Green Card
GKD White and Dandelion Card 
Sunny Studios Preppy Prints PP
SSS Cupcake Party Stamp Set
GKD Inks In:
*Garden Green
*Dark Chocolate
*Wild Dandelion
SU Real Red Ink for the Cherry
GKD Master Layouts 3 Dies
Stickles & Stash Ribbon
