Sweet Things

 How sweet are these cupcakes!  Week after week the inspiration cupcakes just keep getting cuter and cuter.
This week the Cupcake Inspirations challenge CIC116 is sponsored by Amber Ink and she came up with some images and papers to go with the inspiration photo, how cool is that!  AND, the papers and images are just as cute, maybe even cuter.

Can you see the ladybug charm, click to enlarge the photo

The striped black and white paper is supposed to be red but for more contrast I printed it in black and white.  The ladybug images were both facing the same direction.  I wanted them to face each other, to look like they are getting ready to kiss so I flipped one of the images.  I never did this before but it was really easy.  I did a google search for "mirror image" and found out how to do it.  Import the image to Picassa and hit "control, shift and H".  Easy!
That's a neat thing you can do with a digi image that you can't do with a stamp.

Here's the deets:
stamp - digi image by Amber Ink
paper - digi paper by Amber Ink; black and white cs
ink - hp printer
miscellaneous - copics; stickles; ladybug ribbon; gingham ribbon; baker's twine; charm; mini brads; nesties heart and scalloped heart; sewing machine

Here's the challenges:
