Cupcake Birthday for Our Creative Corner

Hi there! It's Saturday and time for a fun challenge over at Our Creative Corner! I ended up missing last week's challenge due to a really hectic schedule. (So sorry, gals!) I have been a horrible blogger lately, life has been getting in the way. Please don't think I haven't wanted to visit your blog....I just need more time in the day lately. :( 

This week, the lovely and talented Kristin Tierney is our hostess and this is unfortunately her last challenge with OCC. Boo! Our theme is "Bakin' Beauties" and we are using the inspiration photo to get started. The rest of the challenge details are listed below, in Kristin's own words.
"I'm obsessed with beautiful cookies and 'fancy' cakes!  I always try to make them myself, but generally fall a bit short...  Your challenge this week is to make a creation based on these delish looking treats - the catch?  You MUST use something you would use in baking in your creations.  Get creative - use food coloring, paper liners, or sprinkles.  Know any cool techniques with egg whites, flour or sugar?  You need to explain your 'ingredient' in your description of your creation."
Although my card has a whole lotta ingredients, two were pulled from my kitchen cabinets. Can you guess what they are? The base of the cupcake is made from a light pink cupcake wrapper. I stamped the image on it, then punched it out. After punching, it lost a lot if it's dimension, so I punched another "base" out of white card stock, stuck the punched cupcake wrapper to it, then ran it through the Paper Crimper. The top of the cupcake is decorated with some edible sugary sprinkles...thanks Williams Sonoma! I guess technically the baker's twine could be considered a "kitchen" ingredient, so I will include that, too. 

I used the awesome sketch from Deconstructed Sketches for the layout. Check it out!
