Be Inspired Wednesday Cuttlebug Challenge #24

Welcome to Be Inspired Wednesday at Cuttlebug Challenge with a big thank you to Regina at The Cutting Cafe http://thecuttingcafe.typepad.com/the_cutting_cafe/ for these super cupcakes and messages to compliment your card or project. I took a Prima tin and altered it so I could fill it with some birthday goodies. Notice the icing on the cupcake? I will be giving a tutorial on the technique March 30!! Be sure to stop by and see how easy it is!! And what is icing without sugar sprinkles, except I used lime glitter (sorry, name unknown). Prima and Imaginisce flowers were used and the thin green ribbon is from Wright. The weave lime green ribbon is from last year that I got on sale because it was for Christmas..I did not see it being used for Christmas, but knew it would work for my scrapping stash. Papers used are from K&Company (Que Sera Sera). Cuttlebug birthday and swiss dots embossing folders were used to give it that little extra touch!! Stampendous dots were used on the card cupcake. General's Pastel Chalks, Yasutomo paints and Loew-Cornell pencils were used along with my Marvy blender Pen. Be sure to stop by Cuttlebug Challenge and see what the design team has for you this week!!
This is a close-up of the Prima tin that I decided to alter and make pretty. All I need to do is fill it with candy and/or flowers!!
I chose a different cupcake for the card, but kept with the colors from the tin.
A close-up of the flower on the front of the can. Several times on my project I used very thin strips of cardstock and wrapped it around a pencil to curl. All I needed was a little dab of glue in spots to hold it in place.
This is a close up of the lid. Looks just like yummy icing!! Again, you can see the thin strips of cardstock.

I wanted to mention that this week we will have 4 lucky winners each getting the digital files that the DT received from The Cutting Cafe.!! Also, one GRAND PRIZE WINNER who will get to choose 2 extra files from The Cutting Cafe..how cool is that??!!! Be sure to stop by Cuttlebug Challenge
