happy cake and ice cream day!

I had an idea for the challenge on Cuttlebug this week, inspiration 24: Cuttlebug meets cupcake. I had some sticky backed white glistening felt like material that I thought would be just right for icing, so I ran it through the d'vine swirls embossing folder, but you can hardly see the swirls. So I did the background with the hearts embossing folder, but, because it is glitter card, although it has embossed well, it's difficult to see it here, but there really is Cuttlebug embossing on this card!

The current challenge on ABC is G for glitter (gosh, G already and H tomorrow!), so this qualifies for that, and also Secret Crafter 23: have your cake and eat it; linking too for One Stop Craft challenge 22: bling tastic (more bling on this one than the one I linked earlier in the week).

The base of the cake was cut from a coffee cup holder and lots of Poundland bling added on to the icing.
