A card for Grandpa

I always struggle with men's cards and my father in law is no exception in fact i think it's worse so while i was blog hopping i came across this card made by Angela at the paper gourmet and loved it,

so mine is a bit simpler than hers but it was for a man! My kids helped decorate the cupcake with sequin sprinkles ( it's amazing how messy that can get!)

I used Whisper white card stock as the base ( one A4 sheet folded length ways)

The Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set, and the Big Deal Alphabet,

With bold brights inks: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Gable Green, Glorious Green, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue and Only Orange,

I water coloured the cupcake then applied glossy accents and the kids added the sprinkles, everything is mounted on dimensionals.

Thanks for looking :)
