Hey Cupcake!! and exciting news!

There is a "new to me" challenge on the Hope Stamps Eternal blog that I tried out this past week, and it is a cupcake challenge! Every week a new cupcake is offered up as an inspiration for you.

This week I joined in and came up with this pretty little number! I LOVE the way the cupcake liners are all swirly like the filigree in the photo!

I stamped the Flourishes Damask background stamp in Fresh Snow ink onto purple, yellow and peach cardstock and then stamped the Maya Road cupcake stamp over top in Memento Rich cocoa ink.

The cupcake liners were cut out and adhered onto the three cupcakes that I had stamped as part of my card front.

I stickled up the chocolate icing with Diamond Stickles (for the life of me I don't know why I didn't colour in the sprinkles.... d'oh!) and then added a flower twinkle that was included in Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients package! The delicious accordian ribbon, which mimics the cupcake liners is also from Taylored Expressions and you can find it right here!
