Sweet birthday card

Hello again,

I can't believe I'm managing to post again - I guess my recent creativity & card orders are paying off! I will probably find it difficult to craft over the coming weeks, with some house renovations on the way (slowly packing away my craftroom, it's getting new floors!), so I thought I would post in the meantime, whilst I still can. I will have limited space/supplies available for a while, then we're planning a short holiday trip, so you might need to bear with me till mid-May! However, you never know, I might still have a project or two up my sleeve for the coming days... 

Today I am sharing a simple bday card for a friend's boyfriend - she said he has a bit of a sweet tooth, and asked for a card with some sweeties. I decided to make use of my Papermania "Cupcakes" stampset & play with some paper piecing again - love this technique! It is a bit fiddly at times, and time consuming, but the results are often really great! This time, paper-piecing the wrappers was easy-peasy, yet it gave them quite a realistic look (not to mention that it helped with using up some scraps!). The cupcakes were finished with touches of ProMarkers here and there, some glitter , bling & Glossy Accents (of course!) and some Fluffy Stuff for dimension - I think the fluffy stuff really made the cupcake pop! 

What do you think? I think I need coffee and a muffin! ;o)

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
I Love ProMarkers: Release the Glitter
Inky Chicks:  Chocolates and sweets
A Gem of a Challenge: Sweet treats
QKR:  Guy cards

Have a fab & sweet day,
