Hip not to be square at Michelle Perkett Studios!

Hi, Tuesday again so its time for another challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio and this week our challenge is 'Hip not to be square!' We want to see your fabulous shaped cards and of course Michelle's lovely images. You can find Michelle's images in her Etsy Store, at Bunny Zoe's Crafts and there are also some amazing freebies over on Michelle's groups at SNR, PCP and CDAC.

When I first saw Carmen Cupcake  I had the idea to make a cupcake shaped easel card. I used another of Michelle's Digistamps to make the large cupcake card (I used Happy Birthday Flower Cupcake and snipped the candle off). I printed the large cupcake out a few times so I could decoupage the flowers

My printer doesn't like card so I printed the images out and coloured the large cupcakes and Carmen with promarkers and then cut them out, adding some Judikins prisma glitter to the white flowers. I stuck the large cupcakes on some white pearlescent card, cut them out leaving a  strip of card at the bottom of one cupcake. I scored and folded this to make the easel base and popped the other cupcake on. A scrap of white ribbon and the lovely Carmen Cupcake finish the card off.

I'm entering Carmen in the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers: Step Away from the Square
Pollycraft: Anything goes
Incy Wincy: Glitter
Polka Doodles: Fancy Folds
ABC Challenge: E is for Easel Card

Thanks for calling by, don't forget its hip not to be square!!
