Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #21

Hello and welcome to another super fun Cupcake Inspiration Challenge from Rachel over at Hope Stamps Eternal. The HSE Sweeties have some wonderful creations to share with you!

This week's cupcakes are super fun! When I saw these yummy treats I was inspired by the colors, so that is where I drew my inspiration from.

I went to my Basic Grey 6x6 Paper Packs: June Bug and Lemonade and I even paired that paper up with one of the stamps from the Basic Grey stamp collection. I used the Friday Sketch #73 from Prairie Paper & Ink (I switched it up just a tad, but it was the base for my layout). Right now I have a love affair with all things cherry so I was delighted to use this fun stamp and I was even more delighted when I realized that the Zva Crystal Rhinestones were the PERFECT SIZE to add to the cherries on my tree! Don't you just LOVE it? I also created my own little "brads" by punching 3 yellow dots out with my largest whole punch and then covering them with some Diamond Glaze.
And there you have it, another week down, another Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. Don't forget to check out what the other HSE Sweeties have created this week based on their inspiration from these delicious looking cupcakes! And as always, please link your challenge card over on Rachel's blog using Mr. Linky and when uploading to online galleries use keyword CIC21.
