1st up today we have one by our newest DT member Cassie!
I love that she used blue frosting! Her cupcake is actually made in layers with popdots for her 3-D effect

Next up is Lelia
She used clear accents on her cherry to make it shine. loaded her cupcake with bling! and even aded some folds to the liner and layered that and her sentiment is also popped up with pop dots! and a Cupcake always helps me!!! he hee
Next is Piali
I love that Piali created her own sprinkles with bling!
She also layered her cupcake with pop dots and she used a ribbon and tag to add some dimension to her card as well as a texture plate of the background what a great card full of fun elements!

and here is Jacquies!
Jacquie always finds the absolute cutest designer paper! I love the soft colors to this card the layering and the bow and not only did she use glitter she used big bling!
Next is Valeries!!!
Layer after Layer of fun add lots of great dimension to this card! Don;t you just love Pop Dots! I know I do!

And our Sassy from Down Under Deb
(he hee can you tell I'm jealouse and love the fact that she lives in Australia!?!?! he hee)
She did this awesome shaped card! not only is it great, but you can learn how to do it too! This creation is going to be featured on Paper Craft Planets tutorial section! So keep an eye out and try one yourself maybe yay Deb!

And here we have Ellen
She used bling everywhere! her cupcake obviously sparkles all over but her background paper also has some glitter stripes. and for her 3-D element she used some great pink and Brown flowers to coordinate with her cupcake. She was the only one to do a chocolate icing...yum!
