Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Anything but a Card

The theme of this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge is:

'Anything but a Card'

I've made a little tea-light cupcake, and a matching box to present it in.

The tea-light cake was so simple to do...I followed this tutorial over on Splitcoast Stampers. The papers are from the 'Bittersweet' pad by BasicGrey, and instead of using a punch for the scalloped circle on the top, I used one of my Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter). I used ahesive pearls (available here at the Secret Crafter) to decorate the top. I used more of the same paper to decorate the box, adding a flower made using my Nesties again, following this tutorial on Joanne's blog. Here's a close-up of the flower:

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:
