A tower of cupcakes!

I saw this little layout in a magazine and thought it was the cutest thing ever! As tedious as it was, I just had to try it! I was able to enter it into Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #9 which was a sketch challenge. I could also enter it in both challenges over at More Than Favors. The first one, Wacky Wednesday, was to make a birthday card. The second called the Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge, was to use the cartridge From My Kitchen. I don't have that particular cartridge but saw some examples where the designer used a cupcake cut. So that's what I chose to do :) Hopefully it qualifies ok. I'm so happy with how this card turned out!

First here is the sketch I was to follow over at Die Cuttin Divas.
The cupcakes and cupcake stand are from Sweet Treats. The frame is from Gypsy Wanderings. I cut the cupcakes SMALL! 0.44 inches and glued them to a circle I also found in Sweet Treats (cut at 0.5 inches). Added different color stickles for the cherries. I cut the different layers of the cupcake stand using a scallop diamond edger punch by ek success. The cupcakes are all pop-dotted. I attached a picture below to show a side view of what it looks like.

I stamped the sentiment using a clear stamp set from Stampendous (happy phrases I think it is called?). Added the necessary ribbon and a button to decorate (with some bakers twine of course). Thanks!!
