Grats Cupcake

I love making congratulations cards as they can be used for so many different occasions. I think it's one of the most versatile sentiments, so it's always good to have one to hand. 
MelJen's Designs 'Grats Cupcake' is the latest addition to my growing collection of digital images, so it was the perfect choice for this card. I've added dimension to the cupcake by decoupaging some elements, plus lots of texture with heat & dry embossing and the burlap.

I have used the following materials to create this card:

  • Papermania card
  • Buttons, burlap & twine from my stash
  • Patterned paper from Crafter's Companion
  • Sizzix Argyll embossing folder
  • Tim Holtz Kraft-Kore card by Core'dinations
  • Cosmic Shimmer extra thick clear embossing crystals 
  • Promarkers - Oatmeal, Soft Peach, Dusky Pink, Cool Aqua, Duck Egg, Turquoise, Amethyst, Purple & Aubergine

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
