Taylored Expression Cupcake Challenge

Good Morning Stampers! How's your day going so far?
Yesterday I got quite a bit of time to myself in my stamp room so I prepped for upcoming workshops and did the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge for the week. I was well into stamping my cupcakes onto some scrap whisper white cardstock when I realized that most of the ladies participating in this challenge were making "inchies" or 1"x1" squares. I punched mine out with my 1 1/4" square punch so I didn't have room to mat each cupcake square. Oh well, I still like what I ended up with. :)
I started with a Close to Cocoa card base, added a Happy Birthday Cuttlebugged piece of So Saffron and then added my cupcakes. I used the Darling Dots Hostess stamp set and my SU markers in So Saffron, Bashful Blue, and Rose Red with Real Red and Old Olive cherries. The finishing touch was a little Crystal Effects on the cherries for a little shine!
