Have a Wonderful Day

I was struggling to find something for Jo's Tales from the Craft Room 'Sweet Treats' challenge until my upcycling box came to the rescue with a cute glittery cupcake on a birthday card.

To make this card I trimmed a piece of white card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank, rounded the corners and attached it to the card blank.  I die cut the sentiment into a fishtail flag and attached it to the lower edge of the card, just above the curved corner.  I fussy cut the cupcake and shaped it before attaching it to the card with Pinflair glue.

I posted the card on Folksy and sold it within a week!

To make this card I used:
     5" x 5" white matt card blank
     My Favourite Things 'Fishtail Flags' die
     Woodware 'Regular Corner Rounder' punch
     Upcycled birthday card (cupcake and sentiment)
     White matt card

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - Sketch     
     Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
     Tales from the Craft Room - Sweet Treats

What a sweet cupcake and the banner sentiment and rounding the edges on the image layer finishes it perfectly Kath. A great bit of upcycling. x
