Frosting and Sugar for Fusion Card Challenge

I said there'd be an Easter card, and this is as close as I could get.  It's a card, with a cupcake, with a peep on it!

This one is for the Fusion Card Challenge.  A sketch and an inspiration photo . . .

I have always wanted to create a card with a cupcake where I literally would frost the cupcake with embossing paste.  Today was the day!  Here is the result . . . 

I created my cupcake liner by scoring a piece of paper by hand, I would go up every 1/8th inch on the bottom, but 3/16th inch on the top and score, and then repeat until I had my cupcake paper.  I then hand cut a piece that I glued on for frosting, and I frosted it with Dreamweaver embossing paste, before adding some Sprinkles Glitter from The Stamps of Life.

Now the chick was another story.  I stamped him, colored with a yellow Copic marker and then covered with Faber Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel. 

It's a little busy, but the end result is fun.  Wishing I had a cupcake with a Peep on it to cap off my evening.

Hope you all had a fabulous Easter!
