Yummy Cupcakes

I can't believe I'm still thinking about cake after all the birthdays. Yesterday was Hollyanne's birthday and that's the last one for awhile. But I can still think cake... this is the no calorie and way yummy kind of cupcake!

I made this for a swap that sounded way too fun to not join. Even though I'm cutting back on swaps, there are still a choice few that I just have to be a part of. So as you may guess, this is for a cupcake swap. I went through so many different ideas that flopped before coming up this one. This was a bit time consuming to do, but I think the results are just wonderful.

I started with a Basic Black base and scalloped the edge. Then I printed digi-paper. The black and white paper is from The Angel Company and the pink and black is from a blog I found that is no longer updated called Pirates and Pixies. Way cute!!! I stamped the cupcake using Cupcakeabella from Stamping Bella, but cut the bella off. I colored the image with Deco Pink prismacolor marker and Sepia brown Copic markers. The cherry on top was colored with a Red prismacolor marker and then stickled. I think the overall results are pretty yummy.

I hope you enjoy it, too.
