I have made this card to celebrate a very special birthday. The Creative Inspiration Challenge Blog is 3 years old and we are celebrating with a Blog Hop 18th - 25th Jan. To join in the fun just click on the link here and start hopping. There are oodles of prizes to be won!

Anyway, back to my easel card. Since losing my husband a few weeks ago I have been 'piggin' out' on food, especially cakes so my 'dream come true' would be to eat all these delicious looking cupcakes. BUT!!! I must resist as I have put on a lot of weight.... I can still have chocklit though can't I???

I have coloured the image with Promarkers using a bit of Diamond Glaze on the cherries and Glamour Dust for the frosting. I layered it with Nesties and added some faux stitching around the edge. You can just about see the two ribbons on the left side (the other side is covered with leaves). Also, if you look even closer you will notice that the flowers have been punched from the third paper and gems added to the centres. The punched leaves have been coloured with a Promarker as I didn't have the right colour card. The sentiments and larger cupcakes have been raised up using foam pads. A little punched butterfly with glitter and a gem added finishes it off. Hope you like this one as much as I do, thanks for looking.
