Cuttlebug Spot Challenge - Easel Cards

This fortnight's challenge over at the Cuttlebug Spot is to make an:

'Easel Card'

I've made a little scalloped circle one...using my Nesties to cut the shapes from aqua card...on the top part I added a piece of bright orange card covered with some vellum embossed using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots'...and on the bottom part a piece of bright pink card covered with vellum embossed with my 'D'Vine Swirls' folder. The cupcake stamp is from the Hero Arts 'Cupcakes' set...I coloured it using watercolour pencils, then glittered the frosting using 'Diamond' Stickles and added Glossy Accents to the cherry. The sentiment is a stamp from the 'Anytime Messages' set (also by Hero Arts)...I stamped it a couple of times on to different coloured card, then cut up the letters.  The teeny brads are BasicGrey...and are helping to hold the vellum on...there's also some glue placed under each of the letters and the cupcake. The spotty ribbon is from the Ribbon Girls.


And a view from the side:


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
