Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #51

Hi everyone! It's Sunday and that means it's time for another FABULOUS Cupcake Inspiration challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal! Check out these amazing butterfly cupcakes! Aren't they stunning and delicate?!?The colors on cupcakes inspired me to use the new Basic Grey, Kioshi paper. OK, remember all my fancy talk about not liking Basic Grey as much lately? WELL, I STAND CORRECTED! Basic Grey has redeemed themselves in my eyes with these amazing Kioshi and Green at Heart papers! Sigh... LOVE them!

I have been feeling a bit "vintage-y" lately and have been doing some stitching and sponging on my cards. There is a little bit of everything on this card. I have some of the 1.5" silk ribbon, velvet ric rac, Labels 4, tag and Daisy Heads Spellbinders, button, stickles (on the flower bloom), Swiss Dots EF, and rhinestones! Whew! The sentiment is from Verve's Big Wish set.

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 CIC51 when uploading to SCS. Every week, Rachel highlights the top 5!!

Now head on over to the Sweeties and see how they rocked these adorable cupcakes!!!!
