Music and Cupcakes

Yesterday was an extremely busy day, but I did manage to get two cards created in the evening.

The Musical card is for the Featured Stamper challenge yesterday - the stamper was jdmommy - Anne. She has a great gallery and it was hard to make a selection until I came across the card in the thumbnail. I knew I had to use it. So, I pulled out my set and changed it up a bit. I'm going to begin planning a "Music Lover's Card Camp" in the next month or two and think I may use this one. I want all of the cards to have a music theme and stampers can add different greetings as needed.
This cupcake is a digital image is from Delightful Inspiration. What a yummy cupcake! I used a metallic pen around the edges of the plate, but you can't really tell. The microbeads along the side are stuck to "sticky strip" - duh! and I glistened up the cherries with Chrystal Effects.

I'm off to school - Hope you have a wonderful Monday.
Thanks for stopping by.
