Cupcakes Inspiration 400 Challenge Cupcake Inspiration Challenge! This is the first time I'm participating in this challenge and needed a birthday card so I wanted to have a hand at it.  We are asked to combine a past challenge and a birthday card.  I chose the past challenge #206.  The colors are lavender, turquoise, and pink.

To create this card I stamped the center cupcake (Stamplorations Sketched Cupcake) in black and then a number of other cupcakes in gray Stazon ink. Next I blended some Shaded Lilac and Peacock Feathers Distress ink over the gray cupcakes, masking the center cupcake,  I removed the mask and painted the center cupcake pink; stamped the sentiment and then created a banner and blended a bit of Shaded Lilac and stamped the birthday greeting.  I drew a line from the cupcake to make it appear to be stuck in the frosting.  To finish it off I used a zig glue stick to make the swirls and sprinkled some clear glitter on it; lastly I used some enamel drops in pink to 'splatter' some pink frosting (-:
