Cupcake Challenge #60

Both Bree and Ty spent the night Thursday...it was Ty's first overnight visit. We all did fine even though I kept waking up to check on him. I took time to check out Taylor's sketch early so I could think about what I wanted to make. I just needed to find a few minutes to hide out in my stamp room. So after they were gone (and after dinner at the Mexican restaurant), I pulled out TE Sweet Spring stamp set and got busy.
I inked the image in basic brown and colored it with SU markers. Then I put this aside and finished the card this morning.
Instead of the oval layer on the sketch, I used the basket for the "oval." The egg on the left is cut out from dp from TE Easter Key Ingredients. The black dots on the egg and the eyes were made with a black glaze gel pen. I cut out the basket, added a pastel green brad on the ribbon and then popped up the middle of the basket with foam dots. I used a SU real red marker to color the dot on the top of the cupcake. Then I put Crystal Effects on it to make it look like a brad. The scallop border looked plain and boring, so I added a bit of bling. This could be considered a simple card if the basket was not cut out. To me, simple does not mean this much cutting.
Hop on over to Taylor's blog to see more cards using this week's card layout.
