Cupcakes and Swirls

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Unusual post for me on a Sunday; but I figured since this card was actually completed Friday night, I thought why not, right?!
For this card, I used Kraft card stock from SU, Melon Berry and Aqua Mist from PTI and Luxury White from Gina K. This card fits a variety of challenges also:

1. Get Sketchy: Sketch 53
2. My Partner in Crafting Crime: "Food or Drink" Don't my cupcakes look yummy!
3. Papertake Weekly Challenge: A recipe: 3-2-1. I used 3 colors of card stock (I didn't count the white), 2 pieces of ribbon and 1 button.
4. A Crafty Little Place Challenge: This was another food challenge!
5. Stampavie and More: Use swirls. I used the Cuttlebug Swirls folder on the white piece
6. Totally Stampalicious: Texture-Licious. This challenge was to incorporate at least 2 types of texture. I used embossing and my cupcakes have swirly glitter icing on them that I did by swirling some glue on to the tops of them and then sprinkling a mixture of glitter and clear embossing powder and then I used my heat gun to set it.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone!!
