Crazy Cupcake Class

I am hosting a cupcake class for my customers and put together a couple of projects, the rest are still pending. We will be using the Crazy for Cupcakes SU set and I chose it because it really is a cute set that can be very versatile. You can do birthday stuff but because you get the balloons and the cupcake platter you can easily use if for other occasions as well.
My first card is with Tempting Turquoise and Apricot basically. I used the DSP Rainbow Sherbert because I wanted the cards to be bright and cheerful. I think that I am also going to use the Always DSP for one of the other cards/projects too!
My Second project is pretty simple, it is a little basket that you can put little favors in or fill it with candy to put on the table for a special occasion. It is basically a 7x7 in piece of cardstock that is scored 2 1/2 inches all the way around and then snipped on the inner scores and pulled together. The little platter is colored with SU markers and mounted on going gray-which by the way is the first going gray I have ever used! Can you believe it? I never had that color till this week- and it goes so well with the Pink Pirouette.
So, there are two of my projects and I need to get 2 more together. I hope you all have a grand day!

How cute your card is and what memories the blue cupcake bring to mind! My son will be 44 in April and for his 5th birthday he requested a 'blue' cake. I did my best but it only got to a Robbin's egg blue shade icing with a marbled blue cake. Your color is easier to achieve with paper not food coloring! Thanks for the memories. Love your bright happy card and the soft colors on the basket as well! Wonderful work as usual!
