Birthday Cupcakes

Happy Birthday to Me!!  Oh, yeah, Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another What If? Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have an inspiration photo for you:
Isn't that fun!?  You could be inspired to create a back to school card, or a teacher appreciation gift, or be inspired by the cupcakes and create a birthday card like I did.  It's my birthday today, but this card was for my husband's birthday on Monday.
I stamped the first cupcake and then stamped it on some post-it note paper and cut it out to use as a mask.  I did the same with the cherries, and then stamped the second cupcake and then colored them all up.  I was looking for something to add some interest to the red panel and came across this embossing folder that reminded me of the sprinkles on top of the cupcakes. And I added a little plastic star that I had on my desk from a craft project the kids had done a while ago.  It was the right color and seemed a fun little addition.   I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us this week.  Don't let the photo scare you, who doesn't love cupcakes?? : )  And if you have to HAVE any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order code on my left sidebar.

Love your red/white and blue cupcakes and the cherries just jump off the card. When I saw your layout I knew your inspiration for the layout and it works perfect for this photo inspiration.
