Sweet 16


Good morning!  I have a card to share and some exciting news...for the month of September I am Bugaboo Stamps Biggest Fan and will get to play along with their challenges!  How cool is that?  It's no secret that I am a huge fan, so I can't tell you how excited I was to get the email.

This is for the "Anything Goes" challenge.  I made this for one of my daughter's besties; I thought it was appropriate since my daughter has been doing a cupcake fundraiser this year.  She has 53 cupcakes on her menu and I tell you, we are knee deep in cupcakes...yummy!

"Girl Cupcakes" is colored with pencils and I've added some subtle glitter to the brown areas...I see the camera angle didn't capture it well though.  I've had these cupcake papers in my stash for years...love them!  I pieced together some of the coordinating papers for a fun backdrop for the "16".  For embellishing, I've used a bit of ribbon and some Swarovski Flatbacks.
