You Sparkle, Cupcake!

I just LOVE these cupcakes! I got this image on clearance (!) from Impression Obsession. It's alot larger than most of my images so I made this card 5-1/2" square. I colored everything with my Prismacolor markers, then used my Sakura glitter pen to add some sparkle. The cherries are glittered just a tiny bit then glossed with Crystal Effects. The white cupcake has Liquid Pearl frosting. I used Fruit Punch Stickles on the tiered plate.
Don't you just LOVE that that little guy on the bike??? He's a sticker from Brenda Walton that I picked up a while ago on clearance at Michael's....want to know how he got there??? Confession time - I left my image in the Scalloped Rectangle Nestibility and traced around the inside. Right at that spot is an UH-OH. The hand holding the pen slipped just the tiniest bit but enough that I noticed. Turns out, I love him there and he might not have made it out of the package had I not gone looking for something to cover up my mistake.
I tried a little trick with the Scalloped Rectangle as well. The next layer Nestie was just a bit big for my eye at the long side, so I put just enough of the already cut image back into the die and ran just that part through my Cuttlebug stopping when I heard a pop. Both layers are embossed although it doesn't show here.
You can find the instructions here for the Ribbon Blossom. Pam was kind enough to make an excellent tutorial. I've made them before but she has a special technique that I hadn't tried. In case you're wondering, my blossom contains 20 pieces of ribbon. I made sure it was stationary by using a glue dot under the blossom part.
I added a cupcake on the inside, too, for a little extra yumminess. :-)
