Cupcake Love

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! I have one last Valentine to share today. I started this after I saw the Color Challenge & the Clean & Simple Challenge on Splitcoast this week. The colors were mint, strawberry & espresso w/ a dessert option of a Valentine. The CAS challenge was to make something sweet. 

And I thought to myself...what's sweeter than a chocolate cupcake w/ icing & sprinkles? So I stamped, colored & cut out the cupcake & added some stickles to the icing. The white bg was dry embossed & I had a big heart punch that fit inside the heart centerpiece almost exactly, so I sponged on green ink & put it behind the cupcake.
 The larger layer is actually just a frame that was sitting there, so I embossed it w/ frame folder & sponged the green ink over the top of it. After adding the greeting, it just seemed to need something, so I die cut the little banner, masked just the top of it & stamped the polka dots & woven plaid inside the flags. 

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the DRS Thursday Challenge..this week..Sparkle &\ Shine! Have a great weekend!
