It's a Celebration!

Paper Sweeties is one of the sponsors at the 
Cupcake Inspiration 300th Challenge Celebration!

We are so excited to participate in this fun event!
Here is the Inspiration Photo for today!

And I thought that the cupcake from Paper Sweeties Sending Sweet Thoughts was the perfect stamp for this challenge!

The fun sentiment is from the Paper Sweeties Happy Everything stamp set. I watercolored all the images and sentiment with Ranger Distress inks. I splattered some of these inks onto the background to look like confetti, as well as, put some white and silver Liquid Pearl drops onto the cupcake. The cute candles are straws! First, I ran the BlueBerry straw thru my Big Shot Machine to flatten it. I cut 2 pieces of the straw, and then took some yellow Baker's twine and "stuffed it" into the ends with some liquid glue. I got this great tip from our own Debbie here at Paper Sweeties!!!

Now go join in the fun for this great celebration!
There are LOTS of prizes to be had!!!

Congratulations Cupcake Inspirations!

Thanks for stopping by!
