Would you believe if I told you I've never tasted a cupcake? Muffins, yes. Cupcakes, never! Not one of those frosted goodness. All I've seen are the ones on Rachel Allen and Nigella's shows. So when I saw the card Jan made, it made me want to eat one..but since we don't' get cupcakes here (Mumbai has its first stand alone cupcake shop) so I did the next best thing. Create a card with a cupcake. Didn't have any cupcake stamp either, so found one digital stamp that I had downloaded and printed.

Why was it lying around, not used? Don't ask me, maybe it was waiting for this day!!!! I have no clue where I downloaded this cupcake from...if any of you have the same image and know who's image this is, please let me know.

Image colored with sharpie. Love these alcohol streaks, no tearing of paper like the normal Indian sketch pens do. Only that sharpies are intense. The brown has no other shade, so its way too dark..but fine. I wanted the image to look like and embellishment that is stitched. So out came my white get pen and black ultra-fine sharpie.
For the glitter, hobby ideas 3-D glitter glue in shimmer, generous amount all over the cupcake. And once it was dried, a big dollop of glue and gloss to give it that superb shine. For the cherry, I used a ring binder that my hubby so sweetly got for me, saying you might use them in your cards!! so sweet of him! These are how they look

These have 2 buttons, so just picked the red one, threaded light green grosgrain ribbon through it and drew a faux stitch around the button too. Was having too much fun by now to care where I'm drawing faux stitches!!

Just a close up of all the glittery goodness. 

Thanks Jan for the inspiration! Now if only I could find a cupcake! H's birthday is coming next week, maybe shall have a nice frosted cake, instead of a cupcake.

This card is apt for the Glitterbabe's first challenge, make something sparkly!
