Treehouse Thursday Challenge # 062

Welcome to Treehouse Thursday Challenge. This week's challenge is based on the following sketch.
I used one of the August's new release stamps (see here) called Fall Cupcakes. Isn't it lovely?
I paper-pieced the cupcake with three colors of card stock.
 
The scalloped trim on top and  the sentiment (" with gratitude" from Papertrey) were stamped. The circle-punched leaves (see top) and the flourish for the trim (see bottom) are from the DCWV pattern paper.  I used the the grid background paper from Basic Grey.
The button is from Jane (I call her the Button Queen). Now please check the DT members' blogs to get inspired (see here ) and remember to link your cards/projects to Treehouse)!  If you like to win a guest design spot for September at Treehouse, it's not too late to enter the contest (see here).
 Have FUN!
When you upload your card to SCS, PCP, and your blog make sure and use the keyword THT062.
