Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #25

Welcome to Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #25 from Hope Stamps Eternal! These cupcakes are perfect for this week, as it's really starting to feel like fall. And to me, nothing says "fall is coming!" like the start of football season. So Quarterback Ian from The Greeting Farm is the star of my card today!

Ian is colored with Copics and I added some Diamond Glaze to make his helmet nice and shiny. It's too early in the season for it to be scuffed and dirty yet! The orange paper is the Imaginisce paper Bestitched from the Spooky Town line and I used the star cluster from the Inkadinkado set Angels to add a little interest. The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm set called Sentiments. To finish off the card, I add some Stitchin Button Brads from Imaginisce. The brown ones I used are sold out, but there are some adorable white and pink ones still available!

I wanted to mention the tons of NEW stuff just in at Hope Stamps Eternal. Lots of stuff from Basic Grey, Bella Blvd, Cosmo Cricket, Cuttlebug Embossing Folders...the list goes on! And one more sure to check back on Thursday for a very special Hope Stamps Eternal Blog Hop!

If you want to play along with this week's challenge, add a direct link to your creation to the Mr. Linky widget on Rachel's post. The top 5 cards entered by next Saturday night will be featured in next Sunday's collage.
