Cupcakes 4 U

Tonight is the Cupcake Cascade celebration in the village square. This is my favourite festival of the summer for the simple reason that...well...I love cupcakes. Om nom nom nom!! The Lady Commander of Copics and I basically starved ourselves all day, in anticipation of pigging out on the sugary cakes at the festival. My stamina points were at an all time low, but luckily I managed to roll a solid 18 on my d20, granting me just enough power to make it to the square and begin inhaling the little treats.

First thing I did was stamp The Greeting Farm’s “Birthday Anya II” onto some watercolour paper and colour her up with Distress Markers and my Hydra Brush of +88 wetness. Next I used the Unity “1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Thousand Cupcake Calories” stamp and Spun Sugar Distress Ink to create the super subtle background. I then pulled out the Rock Princess cartridge and used it to die cut the sentiment.

On the inside I created the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Sophie’s Sentiment” set and the Unity “Fabulous Girl” set. I also stamped some more cupcakes on the bottom.

The envelope was also attacked by the cupcake stamp, tying everything together and earning me +2945 sweet exp points. Yum.

This birthday card will celebrate in the following challenges:

The festival was so much fun, with bakers from all over the realm in attendance to peddle their tasty wares. I do believe that we will have to spend tomorrow in the training room to burn off all these extra calories though. Maybe I can find a spell that would accomplish the same thing....hmm....
