Guest Designing at CAS-ology!

I'm playing along today in this week's CASology challenge. This challenge is always a head-scratcher for me, and this week's cue was no different, but in the end, I went with:


supplies: white and pink gingham cardstock, an old Simon stamp set called Savor Sweet Cupcakes, Zig markers to color, Quickie glue pen and Hero Arts prisma glitter for icing, glossy accents for cherry, My Favorite Things Stitched Square Scallop die, Winnie & Walter sentiment, die-cut flowers

I think icing is the best part of a cupcake; the cake is there just to transport as much icing as possible!  This is the best cupcake image I could find that had LOTS of icing, and I glitzed mine up to underline the theme for this week's challenge; after coloring the cake and icing, I used a quickie glue pen to cover the icing, and then dipped it into some glitter.  Here's a closer view:


A little birdie told me that it's also Kymona's birthday, so this card does double duty for that, too.  Many thanks to the CASology team for having me this week!
