Cupcake Challenge 53 - 1st Birthday Celebrations!

Well can you believe Cupcake Craft Challenges has been on the go for a year. Today is our first birthday celebrations and we have a fabulous load of prizes up for grabs as well as a celebratory blog hop with prizes every step of the way! The theme this week is something sweet, with the added option of using a cupcake on your creation.

For my card I have used my Magnolia Love Muffin stamp and it is coloured with distress inks. The papers are from papermania and the ribbon, pearls and flower are from my stash. I used my leone em branch punch to create the small branches and my fiskars punch for the scalloped border.

I decorated the inside to compliment the front and I also included a recipe for blueberry muffins.

Finally, a close up
