Our June challenge is Eat Me, Drink Me
Hey There Cupcake by Jen Shults
For my card I went with the Eat Me part of the challenge (that sounds terrible, lol). I used Cupcakes and Small Packages stamp sets my cupcake and sentiment. I colored the cupcake with Copics.

I added a bit of Stardust Stickles to the cupcake for shine and some Sprinkles for a little bit of something extra.

For the background I used a burlap background stamp and embossed it with white embossing powder and then sponged over that with Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink. I love how the subtle gradient turned out. 🙂
For my layout I used Sweet Sunday Sketch 271.
