"Sweet" Gift for my Niece

My sister decided to decorate her daughter's room in a cupcake theme, so she asked me to make 2 wall hangings. I finally got around to it this weekend, which is a good thing, because she's going to be born in 6 days!

It's hard to tell in the photos, but I put the cupcake wrapper through my crimper so that it looked more realistic :)

I'm pleased with how these turned out and I think that Autumn will love them (well, at least her mom will for now ;) I used my Sizzix Big Shot Pro Cupcake card die for the cupcake, wrapper, and cherry/candle. The patterned paper is from DCWV (one of those big 12x12 pads) and the cute letters on the line are from PTI. The letters are from Alphablocks and the string from Banner Builders. I got the frames from Michaels, they're the deeper frames, so I could do chunkier things on the cupcakes without them being squashed. The backing is felt and came with pins, so I pinned the paper right on to the back. I used chunky SU glitter on the cupcake's top to make it look like sugar.
