This challenge was tough for me, I am not a sewer (my sewing maching is in it's box in the garage -GASP!), so I opted for the stamped kind of stitching. Sassafrass Lass has a stamp set with all kinds of stitching borders and such, called Stitched Borders. The cupcake is from Inkadinkado, Birthday Cupcakes.
I did something different with the cupcake, this time I colored the image with Shimmerz Gold Glimmer and Wintergreen. I highlighted the sprinkles and bottom with copics and then painted on the Shimmerz. I love how it turned out, very sparkly with a hint of color! I also painted the Shimmerz Gold Glimmer on both primas. The DP is from Basic Grey, Urban Prairie -so love that pack, the colors are fantastic!! The sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink, Birthday Basics. Here is a close up picture, I am not sure if the sparkle shows up in the picture.
For the sketch, I followed Taylors Cupcake challenge TECC52TV -it's part of her anniversary celebration of sketches!
If you haven't had a chance to check it out, I did a tutorial on Shimmerz awhile ago, you can check it out here. Don't forget to check out the other DT blogs for more lovely stitched creations!
