Patriotic Cupcakes

Hello.  Welcome.  I have made a little something for Cheery Lynn where the theme this week is red, white and blue.  I always think this is a very classy combo. 

I used a white card that came already embossed with flowers.  I tinted it with VersaMagic Aegean Sea chalk ink.  I cut Cheery Lynn Spring Flower Burst Doily from red card but left all the negatives in place.  I cut Cheery Lynn Small Tea Rose from blue card, use my ball tool on the back of the petals and layered two together.  I like this gives a totally different look flower.  I used Chery Lynn BAF #1 for the white center and then a red rhinestone.  I also added a wink of stella to the edges of the petals.  

I stamped The Greeting Farm Double Cupcake Anya and coloured with promarkers.  The sentiment is from PaperArtsy SIDD5 stamp set.

Big hugs and thanks for your visit.
