Cupcake Birthday Banner

Hi, here is an over 7 foot banner that I made to celebrate a couple of birthdays in my household lately.  I made this also as inspiration for the challenge going on at the "Get Inky!" blog.  Challenge 12: Cakes and Cupcakes.





I used the large stitched cupcake clear stamp from the "Sew Sweet Cupcakes" collection from Get Inky! for Blue Moon Creation.  Available here.


Here is a closer look at  two of the cupcakes I made.  Each is decorated with faux sprinkles made of  sequins or glass seed beads.  They look yummy but are inedible and perfect for my diet!
