Stampin'B Challenge #76 - Food

Vicky Gould was this week's hostess for the Stampin'B's DT challenge blog. She wanted us to make a card with food of some kind -- bonus points for picnic food. I thought cupcakes were good for a picnic!

I stamped the smaller cupcake from Mark's Finest Papers' Cupcake Birthday set and then curved the sentiment a little so it wrapped the top of the image. After coloring the cupcake with Copic markers, I put some new (to me) Ultrafine Raspberry Fizz Flower Soft on the icing. Let me just say here -- I love this stuff! The border was created using two Martha Stewart punch-around-the corner punches I found on the clearance rack at Michaels. Gotta love a bargain! The DP is from DCWV's The Sweet Stack.

My salt and pepper shakers today form a cupcake when stacked one on the other, but I wanted to show you that there are actually two pieces.

Love your cupcake card, Lois. And, I can't believe you have 'cupcake' salt and pepper shakers. How awesome is that! I think I've missed some of your s&p shakers. I've got to backtrack and see them. Out of town today but going to catch up on those asap. I don't want to miss any of them.
