More cake! Yummy!

Another card for Di's Crafty Snippets .Whilst having a rummage last week for the kite material I sorted some material out to make this card for Fluff. The colour is a bit off as the card stock is the same colour as the sentiment paper and the backing paper is actually a pale lemon with dark brown spots on. The icing has come out blue instead of pale purple. Chose those colours as they are Fluff's favourites.
Material is snippets I have had for ages and not big enough to make any clothing or patchwork with. Hundreds and thousands are yellow seed beads left over from another project. The cupcake was made up on quilt backing and then each section of the icing was stuffed seperately from behind and finally the whole cake was DST to the backing paper. It has quite a 3D effect in real life.
Entering into the following challenges:
The Poodle Parlour: Anything goes.
Cupcake Crafts: Going Dotty.
2 Sisters challenges: Spots and dots.
Crafty Ribbons: Birthday.
Ginger Loft: Happy Birthday.

  9. I just love this Mrs A - super cupcake and something fun and different in the playground. I bet it's super IRL, all puffy and waiting for those delicious hundreds and thousands to be licked off.

    Anyone taken you up on the cupcakes - I expect the greedy little monkeys in the playground have eaten them all and I'm too late! Di xx
