TECC25 with new In Colors

I've been playing to take part in one of Taylor's Cupcake Challenges for awhile and finally did one this weekend.  My blogging buddy, Donna, is this week's Featured Cupcake Sampler so I knew I just had to give it a try!  Plus, this is a super cute sketch!
I finally broke into some of the new In Colors for this card.  I used SU Pink Pirouette, Red Riding Hood Red, and Neenah Solar White for this card.  The red panel is run through my Cuttlebug with the Spots and Dots Embossing folder and then I rounded the corners with the SU Small Corner Rounder.  I attached this to the pink cardbase.  For the central circlee strip, I used a couple of Heidi Swap Ghost flowers and several punched circles of Pink Pirouette and Red Riding Hood Red. The larger circles are up on dimensionals. I outlined the ghost flowers and some of the circles with Fruit Punch and Crystal Stickles as well as went and highlighted some of the embossed circles with Fruit Punch Stickles.

 I stamped the cupcakes from Hero Arts Clear Design Cupcakes on Neenah Solar White with Memento London Fog and colored them in with Copics.  I cut them out and highlighted them with Fruit Punch, Cinnamon,  and Crystal Stickles as well as Ranger's Glossy Accents.  The sentiment is stamped with Red Riding Hood Red on Neenah Solar White and then attached to the card front with dimensionals.  The cupcakes were also attached with dimensionals.  It seemed to be missing a little something so I added 3 dew drops to the top left of the focal piece and that definitely helped.

Fun, fun challenge and I probably have not glittered up one of my cards this much in some time!

Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
