4th of July Cupcakes

I was inspired to create today's card by a cupcake from Whole Foods that I just couldn't resist. I only wish the fact that it came from Whole Foods made it good for me but this little paper cupcake has zero calories :)
I used the starts and dots topper that comes with the Hey Cupcake set. I stamped the image and colored in with copics but wanted to mimic the sugar crystals on my real cupcake. I stamped the frosting image on a sheet of super sticky adhesive. I then cut out the frosting for a perfect match and added some clear glass micro beads. The final touch that is hard to see in my photos was adding touches of glitter. The fine glitter fills in the space between the beads and adds amazing sparkle.
The last thing to do was mount it on some layers and hand draw a little box with a white gel pen.

Happy 4th of July to all those celebrating!
