2 Sketches 4 You #48

Two challenges in two days! Now I'll warn you, this is not my normal style. But it really is fun to play outside the norm from time to time. Here's the sketch:
For my card, it really started out with this color scheme. I had been wanting to use these together for a few days, and what better way to use them together than cupcakes!

This card has a ton of bring. The grid paper from October Afternoon, I sprayed with Dazzling Diamonds from Tattered Angels. On the purple cardstock, I made my own little frame with some stickles. It's hard to see in the photo!
For the cupcakes I paper pieced them together and then added accents with glossy accents and my white Uni-Ball pen. I also popped up the icing with foam tape.

I'll be taking a break from blogging for the next few days. Chase and I are leaving to go to Gatlinburg, TN (the mountains of TN) tonight.  I'll be visiting a VERY LARGE scrapbook store while I'm there, so I'll check back next week with my report on it!

I love those cupcakes...where did you get them? Hubby and I live just outside of Knoxville and got married in Gatlinburg---which I call The Las Vegas of the South. Have fun at the scrapbook store and I can't wait to hear all about it. I've been to that store a few times but haven't been in ages.
