Happy Birthday!!

Good morning!! Good morning!

Today is Sunday and that means another Cupcake Inspiration Challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal!!

Here is what we do. Rachel shows us a picture of a cupcake and we (the HSE Sweeties) get terrifically inspired by said cupcake, because we are just that way, and we make a creation that is based off the inspiration cupcake! Sound easy? Well, it IS!! and we would love to have you join us! Smiley from ETA: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE CUPCAKES IN YOUR CREATION! Anything is wonderful!!

Just create anything that inspires you after looking at the cupcake photo below, upload a picture of it to your favorite gallery such as Splitcoaststampers or Paper Craft Planet, use the key word CIC16 (Cupcake Inspiration Challenge 16) and then come back to the Hope Stamps Eternal blog and leave your link with Mr. Linky!!

Last week Rachel offered some yummy blog candy to one of our challengers and if you didn't play, you missed out on some wonderful products - I would have LOVED to win it!!

Well, onto this week's challenge! Here is the yummylicious cupcake photo and my take on this challenge!

Isn't it pretty??!! and this stamp from Taylored Expressions was so fun to colour with all it's cupcakes!

I used Basic Grey Porcelain paper and layered it onto Papertrey Ink aquamist cardstock. I stamped the image onto another piece of the Basic Grey Porcelain designer paper also and cut out the plates so that they could be paper pieced.

I added some Diamond glaze to some of the cupcakes and Frosted lace stickles to others.....all very delicious looking.....

I finished it off with some accordion ribbon with some Zva Creative sweet blossoms attached to the ribbon. I added some Frosted Lace stickles to the flowers too and some Zva Creative Crystals to under line the word cupcakes!!

Now take a boo over to the other HSE Sweeties blogs (on my sidebar) to see their take on this cupcake photo and tell them what you think!!

Thanks for coming around and I hope you have a wonderful day!
