Cakes at Tea Time

The Tag! You're It challenge this week is:

Time for tea!
So here is what I made! The cupcakes have been cut using free templates from a recent craft magazine (I can't remember which one - sorry!) but I cut them slightly larger than the pencil line. The papers are still off cuts from Huge Funky Love (I can't bear to throw any papers away!) and I've inked the edges in Chestnut Whispers ink and also a little pink ink pad.
I bought some clear / iridescent glitter glue over the weekend which adds a really nice touch to the top of the cupcakes!
The tag is a super sized Sizzix Scallop tag which has been cut from lightly hammered ivory card, edges inked again and I've chalked it too as it was a bit stark. Sentiment is stamped with Whispers Chestnut ink and I've used my little wooden Studio G alphabet stamp set. Ribbon from my stash.
The little cupcakes were really easy to make so I think I'll be attempting these again!
