Cupcake Time - AFA DT Post


Hi Everyone! Today over at Anyone for Anya we have a fun new challenge for you: Sweet Treats! For my card, I have used Birthday Anya II with her yummy little cupcake :) Keeping in mind that Valentine's Day is around the corner...I decided to create a cute love scene using the My Mind's Eye Love Me papers.

I wanted this card to be really fun and bright so I used a combination of bright pink and blue to jazz up the card. The heart stamps are all from the Build a Valentine Stamp Set from My Craft spot. I coated the hearts in a blue glitter powder from Martha Stewart, and also coated Anya's cupcake in a pink glitter powder. The blue and pink flowers are from Prima, and the ribbons are from my stash. To tie it all in, I sewed around the edge of the card in a pink zigzag stitch, and around the vertical panels using a purple straight stitch.

I coloured Anya using copic markers, and distressed the edges of the papers using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Victorian Velvet. Here are the copic colours that I used:

SKIN: E00, E50, YR00, E11, R11 (blush)
HAIR: E29, E31, E47
DRESS: (pink) RV13, R22 (blue) B02, BG05

Other challenges that I am entering with this card are:

Thanks everyone for stopping by and can't wait to see your creations over at Anyone for Anya! :)
