French Cupcake Fusion

Here's my card for the current Fusion challenge.  I used both inspiration from the photo and the sketch to put this card together.

The Icing on my Cupcake card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Avery ElleAs soon as I saw the inspiration photo, I knew that the Avery Elle Cupcake stamp set would be just perfect for my card.  I stamped the cupcake pieces on white cardstock using a combination of pigment and dye inks, then die cut the pieces with the coordinating dies and assembled them.  In a nod to the inspiration photo, I added one of the set's small flower images to the top of the cupcake as a decoration.

The cupcake is adhered to a cardfront covered with pink and yellow cardstock strips at the top and a larger panel of blue paper at the bottom.  I stamped the set's "you are the icing on my cupcake" sentiment next to the cupcake in black ink.  A few white sequins completed the design

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Avery Elle Cupcake stamp set, Fizz ink, and Cupcake dies; Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Heidi Swapp Favorite Things 6x6 paper pad; white sequinsSticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Pink Pirouette and Barely Banana cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Winter ink (Mama Elephant)
