Cup cake recycled from a paper cup

Hello dear peeps,

Here is another card made with the same paper cup that I used for my previous creation with shells. I am so glad that you all liked it. I had two cups in all so I still had some paper left behind and I wanted to finish it off instead of saving it. Yes, my new mantra is, "less is more". 
The cupcake has been layered twice and stuck with foam dots. The wee candle you see on the cupcake is the real colour of the paper cup. For the chocolate chips I have used fabric pop up glue in brown and I have also used distressed ink on the cake and the diecut sentiment. The brown paper with the border punch on it has been lying in my stash since almost six years and it came all the way from Australia. The washi tape was not supposed to be here but I felt the card was a tad dull so resorted to a touch of brightness.  Last but not the least, the jelly beans on the cake were meant to look colourful however this is the best I could after distress ink on them. The card was finished off with Wink of Stella on everything except the white areas.


I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Wow - what a wonderful card Monica - love how you have used the very last of the paper cups, and the die cut edge on the paper is lovely, and the cheerful washi tape was just right on this.
Blessings

Hi, Monica! Don't you just love being able to use older things from your stash? It's my favorite part of designing. Your happy little cupcake is adorable in all it's resplendent recycled glory, and that washi tape is the perfect way off adding movement and happiness of color! Fantastic, Monica! hugs, de
