MMSC49 Yummy Cupcake Recipe Box

Good April Morning to you all... I have a little something different to show you today for my MMSC49 sample this week.  I decided to alter a recipe box.  I had this fabulous cupcake image to use from our monthly sponsor:  Sunflowers and Dragonflies ...which thank you very much btw... so, I thought I would make up a recipe box just for sweets.  As I was making this, I was really beginning to think that cupcake was real, and luckily, I did not take a bite out of it.  Doesn't it look just scrumptious?









Congrats to our MMM and MMR winners this week:
MMM~Iris....MMR~Grace, and Teri Sherman

Also a special thank you to our weekly sponsor: Stamp and Create



I hope you liked my project today and that you aren't ready to run out and eat a cupcake now ; )  Now, let's see what you all come up with for this challenging challenge.  I will eat my cupcake while I wait ; )
Have a lovely spring day everyone, and I want to let my friends know how much I appreciate your comments on my work.  It brightens up a spring day even more.   Thank you and many blessings to you all.

Some challenges for this are:
Corrosive Challenges: Texture
Stamptacular Sunday: Spots and Dots..dry embossing all around
Allsorts Challenge: Petals and Pearls..lots of petals and lots of pearls

It does look super yummy and REAL..I would have taken a bite..LOL What a fun project you have made here. I am still just gazing at it as I am amazed at how real it really does look. Nice change up with the box and I love how you were thinking "outside" the box with your whole take on this weeks sketch. Another fantastic creation and talent you always bring to the table.
