Cupcakes with bling... and cookies

Today I have some baked goods for all of you with sweet teeth :) Unfortunately they are all paper, but this may inspire me to do some baking this afternoon... Mmmm.
I have had the idea of making a cupcake shaped card for a while because i am OBSESSED with cupcakes, and I thought the shape would translate really well into a card. Maybe I will have a crack at strawberries or cherries next? so I thought what better challenge to work with than Cupcake Craft Challenges theme this week of buttons and stitching. I have done a bit of fake stitching around the cupcake base and also all around the 'frosting' but that does not really show up in the photo, and my button is in the center of my flower. The center of my other two flowers is a light blue crystal, which qualifies this card for the Stamp Something Challenge of Bling it, also.
Here is a close up of Hilda enjoying her cookie. I love this Motivet stamp, as soon as i saw her i had to have her :)
I hope you have enjoyed my calorie free treats today, thank you for coming over and leaving your lovely comments.
