Here it is! My first SCS upload. Full disclosure, about a year ago I deleted several of my first cards -they were stinkers, trust me! So technically this may have not been my very first upload. But, it's the oldest one in my gallery now!
Lookie there... WOW! I actually colored the "frosting" parts with a colored pen! And see those corners and side piece? I hand cut those with scissors -this card was PRE all my fun toys, ribbon and punches!! Oh man, there is no framing on the image panel at all. heehee!
...And, here is my remake. I kept the general feel of the card. Kept the purple frame, stripes in pastel colors, the cupcakes and general layout. I don't have that stamp set anymore, so I used Verve's Cupcake Affair set and the sentiment is from Birthday Surprise. I popped up the frosting pieces, added a mini flower punch, bling and stickles on them. I also used some ribbon and tiny primas with bling to adorn the side.
So, I think I succeded. You can still see the old card inspiration in there, but it is updated with a bit more layers, ribbon and bling! This was a blast.
