Cupcake Inspiration #21


It's time for another Cupcake-Inspired challenge with the Sweeties at Hope Stamps Eternal! We're up to #21 this week, and Rachel has found more very unique cupcakes to inspire you! Check these out...
Naturally, I had to use my hot air balloon stamp from The Greeting Farm Fly Away stamp set! The balloon in this set actually has big hearts on it, but I used a black marker to ink my stamp and managed to put the image down without the hearts. Then, I punched out these little yellow stars instead, so it more closely mimics the cupcakes! I also added a few silver brads to the center of my ghost flower to mimic the other cupcakes!

I also used Sketch Challenge #79 from Taylored Expressions for the layout of this card.
Hop over here to check out all the challenge details, and to leave a link to your own creation! And stop by the other Sweeties' blogs to how they were inspired by these cupcakes!


I hope you'll make time to play along with this challenge today! Have a wonderful, restful Sunday!
