Cupcake card

I think this is one of the cards we'll make at next week's stamp camp. Seriously, I really could use someone to tell me the truth, though! Is this card cute enough for others to make, or am I just fooling myself? I messed with it and messed with it and had the hardest time making it look good to me.

But once I figured out what I was doing, it wasn't a hard card to make.

This card uses two stamp sets, Crazy for Cupcakes and Everything Nice. The patterned paper is Razzleberry Lemonade, with Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo and Whisper White cardstock. The orange glitter is from the Fine Supernova set. It's very sparkly!

The cupcake stand is colored in Razzleberry, the frosting is So Saffron and the cherries are in Melon Mambo and topped with Crystal Effects for shine. I love that the In Colors are available in markers now! Finally, I watercolored in the cupcake wrappers with Soft Suede so that I could dilute the color a little bit.

The two main image pieces also have lines drawn in around the edges using Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie markers. Because the designer paper has sort of a doodle feel about it, I thought I could get away with that as a way to fill up space when I had too much white space still showing after the card was assembled. I think it's a casual way to bring in more color and vibrancy! :)
