Cupcake with A La Card Monkey Challenge

Theme and Sketch Inspiration
I enjoy participating in challenges that A La Card Monkey has.  I love their themes and their sketches.  When I saw this week that the theme was cupcakes, well, I was disappointed.  I don't have one thing that is cupcake.  I don't own any stamps with cupcakes.  I was tempted to get a free digistamp, but that would mean I would have to color it in.  Yikes!  Another dilemma. 

I wanted to stay true to my commitment to not purchase anything for these challenges.  What was a girl to do?  Then it dawned on me, as my daughter was looking through her old scrapbooks yesterday.  I saw all those paper piecing images I hand drew that were on page after page.  My stars!  Why didn't I think about paper piecing a cupcake?  So....I did.

I embellished the frosting with this glitter paint and pearls that I won from A La Card Monkey a few weeks ago.  The color inspiration is from CR84FN.
