RCC4: Bring on the Cupcakes!

Hi all!  Welcome to another Ribbon Carousel Challenge!  This week we are using an image of cupcake stand filled with ribbon cupcakes as our inspiration.  Word.  Ribbon cupcakes?  So very cool and pretty!

Inspiration Challenge 

And if the challenge isn’t fun enough on its own – we have a sponsor this week! Our very own Sparkle, who also owns Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, is offering up the lovely Cupcake Ruby as a prize! 


For my card I used Celebrating Chloe (another stamp from Sparkle) and some delicious cupcake paper from the new Lime Twist line of designer paper by My Mind’s Eye.  I paired the paper and image with some extra nice satin ribbon.


After coloring Chloe with Copic markers I added a touch of glitter using a red Copic Spica Pen.  Of course a little stitching along the edges after layering on red cardstock didn’t hurt! :)


For more eye candy head over to the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blog.  You can also find all of the details on how to enter the contest there. :)
