Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #118 - Chi Chi Memories

It's time for another amazing Cupcake Inspiration challenge!

This week we are sponsored by Chi Chi Memories; a fabulous place to grab some digi images!  Hope you will soak in this amazing inspiration photo and then join the fun!!

AND the amazing Cupcake Inspiration picture - yum, yum - so glad they are calorie free!  Gosh, those colors remind me sooooooooooooo much of sherbert - lime, orange, cherry limeade - oh yeah, my little people LOVE serbert!

I used The Sweet Stop sketch for the layout - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this sketch; one of my all-time faves!

The Cupcake and Sentiment (Carpe Cupcake) is from Verve Visual AND it's on sale this month - 40% off...only $4.50.  I am not reimbursed by Verve AT ALL; but if you order the set; please mention my name in the comments. 

I had so much fun coloring the cupcake to match the cupcakes in the picture - even have a few sprinkles on top.  The 'frosting' was accented with Glossy Accents - very cool IRL.  The strip of paper behind the Berry Sorbet Polka Dot ribbon has the same 'sprinkles' stamped in VersaMark for a nice detail. 

I sewed each of the layers and then distressed them both too.  The papers are from MME (of course - LOL)!  I also embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder. And check out that great 3D candle on top of the cupcake - (grin)!!

Go ahead; take some inspiration from those delightful cupcakes and join in the fun!

...calorie free cupcakes...

Hugs, ~M.
