A cupcake with a flower and bling twist!

Cupcakes are a wonderful way to celebrate birthdays and I am forever falling in love with new ways to "build" them on cards!  Today let's use Double Rose Ribbon White 1.5" and Beautiful Bling Borders-Fancy Waves! by Nina Brackett....

I tinted my rose ribbon using antique rose glimmer mist and glued a single rose strip to form the bottom layer of the "frosting" area.  I then added three more roses cut into individual pieces and layered to form the rounded top.  The bling border scallops are the perfect fit for the rose ribbon and provided that little something extra to the design. 

A real birthday candle tops the cupcake and a hand tinted half doily gives this card an unexpected pop of lime green.  I kept it simple with a kraft cardstock card base and kept the focus on the sweet details of this floral and bling confection!
