Celebrate with Cupcakes

Sweet weekend treat!
I stamped my "Square Pegs" cupcake in Vivid Coffee Bean and Brick, getting the lighter cocoa and pink shades by stamping off to make more cupcakes in a snap! I added the little hearts on top, then cut them out o layer over the XO border I stamped on a piece of Basic Grey Porcelain DP (basically a pink sheet with bleeding watercolor effects on it, very pretty!) and adding the word "celebrate" below the popped up trimmed heart. I kissed the heart sprinkles onto the heart before stamping to match. You can't see it very well in the pic, but I added a dot of Sakura Glaze Pen onto all the little hearts and chips, adds the little bit of shine the card needs and makes the sprinkles very lifelike! :)

Base is the new Innocent Pink and the Chocolate Kiss background I left smooth and unstamped, like silky smooth chocolate! I could eat this color combo up!!

Thanks for stopping in!
