Yummy cupcakes

I love sketches - especially when you're in a hurry! This is a card for a friend which was made in a bit (ok a lot!) of a last-minute rush - it's an old Taylor Van Bruggen sketch that I've been wanting to try for ages.


Stamps are from Crazy for Cupcakes, coloured with Copic markers. Papers are from the Tea and Crumpets pack - I love pink and brown together - such a classic colour combo. I mounted the pink brads on circles of Chocolate Chip cardstock punched out with the 1/4 inch circle punch - gives a nice extra dimension.

I topped each cupcake with some pink stickles - don't they look good enough to eat...mmmmmm!

Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

What did you pay for your copic markers? I hear they are extremely expensive.

This is gorgeous(as are all your cards)! I think that Stampin Up products have such style and a signature all their own. I love them.
