Magnolia Down Under Challenge #8 - Cupcake

There is a fun challenge group out of Australia called Magnolia Down Under. Their challenge this week is simply called Cupcake. The idea is to use at least one Magnolia stamp on the card with "cupcake" as the theme.

This was perfect timing for this challenge. I just recently got the Sweet Collection of designer paper from DCWV. I made the flower by layering paper flowers punched out with the five-petal punch and trio flower punch. I wanted to make it look like Tilda was popping out of the cupcake. I think she would have needed chocolate frosting covering her hair to make this really work well. I still like the effect.

I am still trying to get in the swing of decorating the inside of the card. I love the effect, but have yet to go over the top on the inside of the card.

Check back Wednesday to see the first card I made for this challenge. The only problem, I forgot to add a Magnolia image (duh!).

Have a wonderful Monday!

What a cute card! I love the idea of Tilda jumping out of the cake, and you made me chuckle thinking of her being all smeared up with chocolate icing!
