Cupcake on a Pedestal

I finally got a chance to make a card!!  I used a whole bunch of goodies (some new ones too!)

This card is for 3 challenges...

The layout is from Stamping 411
The colors are from Create with Connie and Mary - Concord Crush, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery
I used today's Technique Lover Challenge -


First I inked my embossing folder with white and put a blue strip in and glued that onto the blue card base.
I did the magical masking technique with glossy paper, masking tape and 3 colors of ink (blue, green, purple).  I rounded the corners.
I stamped with Staz On on the purple, white and celery and paper pieced the cupcake image.  I embossed this in the oval frame and cut it out.
To embellish I used ribbon, buttons and LITTLE BRADS.  I just got them and they are SOOOOO cute, I love them.  I would definitely recommend getting these!
I finished off the image with some dazzling details glitter glue.
