Yellow Cupcake


I do love to combine challenges.  As you probably know.  So when Susan set the current One Layer Wednesday challenge, Bugaloos: any type of bugs you want to use, I knew exactly which image I was going to use.  So I stamped the image and the sentiment last week and left it uncoloured and unfinished in the hope that another challenge would come along that I could combine with this one.

To the rescue: CASology!


Perfect match!  I decided to stick with different shades of yellow, and almost faltered at the grass, but no, I kept with yellow, and I like how it turned out :)

I added some Stickles on the bees' wings, the candle flame and the, er, bits on the cupcake (you can tell I don't bake cupcakes) then added some baker's twine at the top of the card to balance the design.

This just makes me giggle, both that fact, and the card itself! I adore it in mono chrome shades of bee-utiful yellers, even the grass!! (And now I've added ANOTHER item to my Wish Book! Yikes!)
