Cupcake Inspiration challenge #40

Hi everyone! It's Sunday and that means it's time for another FABULOUS Cupcake Inspiration challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal! Check out these fun present cupcakes!! Birthday? New baby? The possibilities are endless with these cutie pies!

I took my inspiration from the fun colors and super cute yellow ribbon on the "presents". I colored Madelyn's scarf yellow and added some yellow seam binding ribbon (from Martha Stewarts). I colored the image with Copics. For some dimension, I added Zva Creative Sweet Blossoms to her hat and on the bow.

The strip of pattern paper is Bella Blvd, December Details -I LOVE it when Christmas paper can be used for other occassions -aren't those hearts cute?? The white cardstock is stamped with the background stamp from {ippity}'s Because of You. I stamped it lightly in Barely Banana for a subtle effect, but you can still read the word "love" IRL.

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 and use CIC40 when uploading. Every week, Rach highlighs the top 5!!
