Easter Cupcake

A fun Easter card today, in the shape of a cupcake, topped with tiny Easter eggs and lots of sprinkles.
 I used an Anita's shaped blank, and covered it with some ancient Papermania paper, which I ran through a paper crimper, for the cupcake wrapper.  Using the blank as a guide, I cut some pieces of brown card for the layers of icing, inking the edges with dark brown in for definition.
To decorate the icing, I die cut some egg shapes with an Xcut die and shaped them with a ball tool, and stuck them down between the layers of frosting.  I also went wild with the sprinkles, adding three different colours of Stickles and an assortment of gems.
To decorate the wrapper, I added some self adhesive lace, and a stamped sentiment, which I die cut with a Sue Wilson die.  The final touch was to add a couple of flowers, made with Woodware punches, with button centres.
