Today's card is based on the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #14 at the Hope Stamps Eternal blog. I went very literal again as I HAD to use the Imaginisce penguins that I'm sure the cupcakes were based on:
It's also for Paper Bloom's Shape Up Challenge, which is to make a shaped card.
In case you can't tell, the top of the cupcake is supposed to be a little island and the bottom is the ocean. Yes, that's real sand on the top! I cut the cupcake and the tree with my Cricut using the Doodlecharms cartridge.
I was going to use the penguin stamps, but they were a little too big for my cupcake so I cut these out of a sheet of patterned paper and they're just the right size! I added some Stardust sparkle to the "ocean" and little rhinestones for the coconuts and on the flower.
I hope you like it and TFL!
