Crafty Gals Monthly Challenge - October 2012

It's time for the Crafty Gals Blog Group's monthly challenge.  This month's hostess is Athina.  Here is the challenge that issued to us this month:

"Think Outside the Box!"

"I challenge you to make a project with no squares or rectangles (not even the base of a card or scrapbook layout). Since we have already stepped outside the box, lets take another step. Try a technique that you have not tried before. It is always fun to learn something new and expand our creativity. Have fun with it! I can't wait to see what you create!"

This challenge was definitely outside of the box for me. It took me sometime to come up with an idea but after searching the internet, I found some cute cards that were shaped like cupcakes.  So I present my version of the cupcake card.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Ink:  Regal Rose
DSP:  Ice Cream Parlor (SU! Retired)
Misc:  Striped Embossing Folder (SU!), Large Circle and Scalloped Circle Nestibilities, Stickles.
