Hello!  Today's card is being entered in the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (anything goes).

When I saw the MFT sketch it reminded me of a tiered cake, which brought to mind the cupcake stand from the Sweet BD Wishes stamp set.  To make this card I stamped the cupcake image and sentiment using MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  To "color" my cupcakes I used one of the little splatter stamps from Distressed Patterns.  I used Wplus9 Storybook collection inks, I love these inks because they work so beautifully together, no thinking necessary as to what colors go together.  If you look closely you can see that I used another of the splatter stamps to stamp around the outside of the cupcakes.  I used the Fairy Dust color ink pad for that which is why it's so light, but I love the magical quality of that ink (guess that's why Dawn named it "fairy dust", hee hee!)  To add a bit more to this very simple card I brushed the frosting on all of the cupcakes with some clear Wink of Stella, and I added Glossy Accents on top of the cupcake stand.  I couldn't get a great shot to show this detail well, but it looks so pretty in person!

That's all from me today, thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!
