4 in 1 combo card

Holy Doodles, I've crammed 4 challenges into this card for you today. It really can be done. First this is this weeks CPS sketch challenge. I used the Color Create Cream, Chocolate and Red challenge for this week, added in The Pink Elephant circles and scallops challenge and topped it off with the Studio G #7 paper piecing. so here it goes Everyone... I have wanted to do a cupcake card for a while now, but the thought was adding on pounds, so i bit the bullet and took one for the team lol. With this card i used some great lace ribbon that I've had and just didn't know what to use it for. And I used some fabric paint to give the icing some real dimension. I added some glitter to the wet fabric paint for a little extra sprinkle and the small cupcakes on the bottom of the card are all paper pieced, iced, and glued onto painted grunge circles. (I added some glitter to these before they dried too)

Supplies:
Stamps: Polka Dot Pie-Chocolate Treats 1, Studio G cupcakes quad.
Diecuts- Spellbinder classic and scallop circle
Paper: Card stock- Very Vanilla (SU), Bittersweet collection (Basic Grey)
Accessories: Lace Ribbon, red glitter, fabric paint, Basic Shapes Grungeboard (Tim Holtz)
Coloring agents: Versafine Onyx Black, vintage photo distress ink (Ranger), Christmas red ink (colorbox), Le Plume markers, Red Pepper paint dabber (adirondack)
Tools: Scor-pal, Purple Cows 2-in-1 trimmer, postage stamp punch, corner round punch, small tipped paint brush.

Hope you enjoyed todays card. Try mixing challenges up to push your creativity into overdrive!!!
Happy Crafting
