Cupcake Shaped Card

Hello, good morning, and Happy Father's Day!!!  My dad is working today, so we will be celebrating tomorrow....  I'm so excited to be entering another Birthday Sundaes challenge.  The task this week is to create a shaped birthday card (no squares or rectangles allowed).  I am also going to be entering this in My Craft Spot Monday challenge: create something sweet.





Birthday Bash cartridge-  card & layers cut at 5.55"
Hero Arts stamps- Birthday Messages
Martha Stewart- crystal tinsel glitter, garnet fine glitter
Stickles- star dust
Glossy Accents

I used garnet fine glitter on the cherry, and then covered it with Glossy Accents.  I learned that trick from Kimberly at My Craft Spot.  It makes it almost like a puffy sticker I used to collect in the 80's! :)  It also keeps the glitter from falling off everywhere....  Enjoy!
