Cupcake Hello

Hi friends!  I'm popping in with my take on this week's Viva la Verve August Week 2 sketch.  I didn't have a chance to play along ahead of time, so stole a pocket of time last night and hit the studio.

Stamps used are from the Cupcakes set and the heart from Love Notes.  I made a chalkboard piece using the Rounded Scallop Frame Die in black, with the sentiment embossed in white an a bit of white ink stamped and smudged around the edges.  The cupcake pieces are stamped in pool party and blushing bride and popped up and sprinkled with glitter and glossy glaze for some pizzazz.

I added the heart using the Jotted Heart Die, then a doily and finished off with some beaded stick pins and seam binding ribbon.  And since cupcakes are the perfect celebratory treat, I'm linking this up to our current Diva Inspirations challenge.  The challenge is open until the end of the month, so feel free to play along as often as you like!
