Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #52

Hi everyone! It's Sunday and that means it's time for another FABULOUS Cupcake Inspiration challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal! Check out this creation!  It's a combo cake/cupcake BONANZA!  Look at the fun flowers and colors?!  Pretty cute, huh?!?

I was inspired by the hot pink trim on the plates and flowers and matted my layers with Raspberry Fizz!  I colored my Miss Anya Love image, with copic markers and added some pearl accents.  I often get asked what ink I use with my copic markers.  HANDS DOWN, Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa.  It does not need to be heat set and doesn't smear at all with copics!

The pattern paper is Basic Grey, Green at Heart.  I did a bit of stitching around the frame -both straight and zig-zag!  Whoa, GO me!!  LOL! 

I used Mercy's sketch #62 for the layout.  I love this one, simple and pretty.  Great sketch to showcase an image.  And see the cording thru the button?  That was recycled from some packaging on one of my boys toys!  The perfect size, I didn't trim it or anything.  The pearl pins were from my craft supply.   

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 CIC52 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!!!!
