Retro Fresh Challenge - Cupcakes & Sprinkles

Hey guys, I'm hosting the Retro Fresh Challenge over at The Greeting Farm this month. Check it out, the theme is CUPCAKES & SPRINKLES! Yummers!

Here is my card using Birthday Anya II, Delicate Words Die Set, Film & Polaroid Die Set and the Tulip Border. I was inspired to make this gigantic cupcake (card size of course) by my friend Gina. It's is a coffee sleeve and just a circle insert. How easy was that?! I just decorated it with a doily for icing and some pattern paper for trim. Anya is colored with Copics and also paper pieced. I added some polka dots to her skirt with a marker. 

I wanted to mimic the heart cherry on top of the cupcake on the Anya image, so I used the heart from the Film & Polaroid Die Set. The heart was too pointy, so I just did a minor trim to round out the edge of the point at the bottom. 

I hope you like the theme I chose. Come and play along over at the TGF Blog, you just might win!
