Good day to you, I am showing casing today's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, CIC65 with Verve stamps(new release stamps too, you gotta luv that).  I used the new set American Hero, this is a wonderful set of grateful sentiments and stars.  The sentiments in this set are very versatile.  I embossed the background with the stars embossing folder and then sponged it with SU night of navy ink.  I distressed the edges and stitched a crazy stitch above the clear gems.  I made a bow tie bow with the ribbon and then added a SU star brad.  I used Taylor's Sketch, TESC118.  Be sure to check out the other sweeties CIC over at the new Cupcake Inspiration BlogI can't wait to see what you create, have a fantastic summer day!  Enjoy.
