Cupcake Inspiration challenge #27

Hi everyone! It's Sunday and that means it's time for another FABULOUS Cupcake Inspiration challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal! In honor of World Card Making Day, Rachel is having a storewide 15% sale!! Promocode WCMD at checkout!! Check out this week's fun Halloween cupcake!

I took my inspiration from the color purple and the stars on the cuppie. The darling cupcakes and sentiments are from the Susie Surprise set from The Greeting Farm. Each cupcake is colored with pale purple copic markers and adorned with colored star gems (found at the Dollar Tree in the nail section). Aren't they the CUTEST?!?
I punched stars from cardstock that coordinated with the gems and put one in each center. The pattern paper and white twill ribbon are from PTI.

Everyone is invited to play along in the challenge!! If you do, be sure to link your creation to Mr. Linky on the HSE blog. Every week, Rach highlighs the top 5!! Congrats to this week's Top Picks (I will update link in the morning after Rachel posts it)!!!
