A Gem of a Challenge - Anything But Square

We have a fun new challenge for you at A Gem of a Challenge, this week our theme is,"Anything but Square", so time to get creative with those shaped cards, we're looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
 Once again, I've combined my love of baking with my love of papercrafts, and went for a cupcake shaped card.  The funny thing is, I don't have much of a sweet tooth, I love baking cakes, but not really eating them.  I found a template for the card shape on Pinterest here, I just enlarged it to the size I wanted.  The papers I've used are Papermania Tulip, I've added faux stitching to give it an appliqued look.  The cherry was made with a punched circle, I made the stalk and leaves with gingham ribbon.  Every cupcake needs sprinkles, and I figured that an appliqued one should have button sprinkles, with a scattering of pearls thrown in for good measure.
The oh, so cute bear digi can be found in the Pink Gem store here, I've coloured her with Promarkers and fussy cut her, before attaching her with foam pads.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - #71 - Shaped Card with Buttons
Artistic Inspirations - #50 - Pastel Colours
The Corrosive Challenge - #178 - Shape Up
Crafty Friends - #8 - Doodling - doodled stitching
