Are you ready for some Cupcakes??? (why did I just here the Monday Night Football song in my head??? LOL) I never did make it to last week's Cupcake Challenge, between a pulled muscle in my arm and an attack of my HAE I was not stamping much this week, but I made sure to play around with this week's theme. I think you will like it...if you are addicted to Polka Dots as soooo many of us seem to be! ;)

Here is this week's Cupcake Inspiration piece:

I went literal this week, I think this may be the first time I used an actual cupcake for these challenges!! I've been dying to play around with my new Digi Cupcake image by Amber at So Many Colors, so Little Time. The dots are pieces of punches out Textured Cardstock and the cupcake frosting is, of course frosted with Stardust Stickles! ;)

A few more polka dots for the inside as well...

Stamps: Cupcake (So Many Colors,) Happy Birthday (A Muse,) Have your Cupcake (Savvy Stamps)
Paper: White (PTI,) Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze (SU)
Ink: Printer, Lipstick Red Chalk (Cat's Eye Queue,) Copic Markers
Misc: Jewel Stickers, Taffeta Ribbon, Pop Up Glue Dots, Stardust Stickles, Corner Rounder Punch
