Pinspired Challenge


A new challenge blog has started up, and what an awesome concept!  Each challenge is inspired by a "pin" on Pinterest.  I'm playing along with their very first challenge.  Maybe you'd like to play too?  Check out the website.

Here's the inspiration photo:

And here's my interpretation.  Since The Alley Way Stamps is the sponsor, and since the Alley Way Stamps is one of my faves, it only made sense to use Alley Way Stamps! 

I made a cupcake out of a couple of sets.  I used the circles from Trees Company to create the look of icing, and for the cupcake liner, I used the tree stump, and stamped it upside down five times in a row.   I used the flower stamp from the Talk to Me set to create the border between the icing and the lining.  The adorable little Happy Birthday sentiment is from Cover Ups.  I just love this font size.

Hope you like it and hope you come by and visit again soon!
