Cupcake Celebration LSC232 MMSC13

This card is for Splitcoaststampers' Limited Supply Challenge (LSC232), to make a food-related card using only cardstock with "food" names.

I used pale plum and perfect plum SU cardstock, some plum print paper, and chocolate core'dinations, which I ran through the cuttlebug and sanded. I stamped my cupcake on the brown core'dinations with white ink and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then cuttlebugged and cut apart to use the chocolate side for the frosting and the plum side for the cupcake paper. I then crimped the plum cupcake paper and mounted my cupcake on a pale plum paint chip.

My layout is from the Midnight Madness challenge (MMSC13) found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/
