The Card Concept Cupcake challenge

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
I was personally hoping to get more crafting and blogging in but sadly my power was out most of Saturday, the weather wasn't even that bad, I don't get it! Oh well, I did manage to create this cupcake card for The Card Concept Challenge.
The yummy looking cupcakes in their photo inspired my card. I also really wanted to use this set from Mama Elephant that I have had for a bit and have yet to use it till now. I believe my card would fit into the clean and graphic category for this challenge.

I used pistachio pudding cardstock as my card base and then white cardstock to create my subtle background with a chevron stencil and some pool party ink. I stamped my cupcakes on separate white cardsctock (120lb from SSS) colored them in with Copic markers and then cut them out to adhere onto my card. I stamped both sentiments with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with black and gold embossing powder. I covered my cupcake tops with some Wink of Stella glitter pen but sadly it doesn't show up well in the photo. To finish it off I added some random silver sequins.

Hope you enjoyed my cupcake card! Thank you so much for stopping by!:)
