Tart and Tangy Watermelons & Cupcake Challenge

This card actually fulfills a couple of challenges. The first is Taylors Cupcake Challenge. The second is to use nestabilities - which I used for my rectangle and for my pink scallop rectangle at The last is for Our Creative Corner - I had to use embossing and I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the background on the CTMH cardstock - Amethyst. The ribbon and flowers were from some blog candy that I won so I have no idea what company they are from. The DP is Basic Grey Euphoria. The cupcake stamp is from Inque Boutique and I paper pieced the cupcake liner with Euphoria paper. The icing was colored in using Copics and the sprinkles were Taylor Twinkles. The bling in the center of the flowers are from Doodlebug.

I can't take credit for this idea. I saw this on someone else's blog but I can't remember where! What you do is take your orange stamp from the SU tart and tangy stamp set and use your markers to color the flesh red and the rind green, stamp and then cut in half. Use your black marker to draw seeds and then I used crystal effects over the seeds to make them shiny.

On the first card, I made my own background by making dots with my black marker. All cardstock is CTMH and I used my cuttlebug.

On the second card, I used my cuttlebug and my SU slit punch to create a scalloped border.

FYI: Marie is giving away a Lavender Vanilla Scrapbook Kit over on her blog and I want to win it. All I had to do was post THIS link to Go. Be Creative. ( here and I am in the drawing for the kit. Check out GBC if you have a minute!
