cupcake hot air balloon anyone?

Here is a fun card that I made for the Food and Travel challenge over at the Hero Arts Blog. I am also submitting this to the Card Style Fun and Cute challenge at Moxie Fab World.
I used Hero Arts' adorable Large Cupcakecling stamp as the hot air balloon. I don't know if it would really float in real life. LOL! I would love to ride on a cupcake shaped hot air balloon for sure! =)

The sky is stamped using the Cloudsbackground stamp. The basket is cut from one of the cupcakes from thissweet set.

The squirrel is from thisadorable set and the sentiment is from thisset. I also added some beads on the cupcake for more yumminess.

That's all I have for now. Hope you have a sweet day! =)


Thanks for stopping by!

How cute is this! I love the whole idea of a cupcake hot air balloon, but your coloring is wonderful and the sprinkles on the icing and the way you added a button to the cloud are just extra special touches you always think of.
