Sweet Cupcake Shaker Card

Remember how I said I had another cupcake card to share with you? Well, here it is. :) I had so much fun going through my scraps to make the card for the Scrapalicious sketch challenge (you can see that card HERE if you missed it), that I thought I would make another card using my scraps. Plus, Becky over at Squirly Girl Creations is having a challenge right now to create a card using your scraps and a K Andrew Art Stamp. I really enjoyed the sketch that was provided for the sketch challenge, so I went over to Page Maps by Becky Fleck to find another sketch for inspiration. This is the sketch I used. It is from the March 2010 Card Maps section.

And here is my card.

For the background paper, I used Ruche textured cardstock in Khaki (Paper Temptress). This has such a great texture. I love all the paper that Patricia carries over there. For the blocks I used two different My Mind's Eye patterned papers. Love the colors on these papers, don't you? The blocks were made from a cutting file by FileKutz called Quilt Block Puzzler. The cut file had the dashed lines already and I just went over them with a black marker. The focal element on the card is a cupcake shaker. Erika over at Crafty Sprouts had a great tutorial on making shakers and is hosting a challenge to make a shaker card. My cupcake is made from a cute cupcake border file by Beloved Keepsakes. I modified it quite a bit to create my cupcake, but that was my starting point. The background of the cupcake was embossed with the Spots & Dots folder and I used green and orange micro beads inside the shaker. I gave my cupcake a cute face using a Peachy Keen face stamp (Wide Eyed Kids) and added some red Stickles to the cherry. Finally I stamped my sentiment using a K Andrew Art Stamp (Food for Thought).

Here are the challenges I am linking this card up to:
