Sweet as a Cupcake

Happy Tuesday!
For today's post I created a card with something sweet - cupcakes. I love eating, baking and decorating cupcakes. I also love creating cards with cupcakes. For this card I'm participating in three card challenges. First I went to Friday Mashup for Challenge #20 which incorporates cupcakes and buttons. Next I went to The Paper Players for Challenge #60 - A CAS Sketch. This is a great layout that I will be using again in the future. Finally I went to Colour Q for Colour Q Challenge #99. I just love the vibrant colours in this challenge.

And here's my card:

The details are:

CS: Island Indigo, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive
Stamp Set: Create a Cupcake, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Embellishments: Crushed Curry1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Old Olive brads, Sherbert Designer Buttons (retired), Rutton Latte Buttons (retired)
Tools: Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Crimper, Cupcake Builder Punch, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch

Have a great day :)
