CIC44 - Hugs and Kisses

Whew I made it and with time to spare.  I wasn't sure I'd get this done in time to participate in this weeks Cupcake Inspiration Challenge but I did it!

Wow there's a lot going on with these cupcakes.  I really liked Hope's comment...
looks like Valentine's Day blew up, right???  That really made me chuckle.  I wasn't sure how I was going to pull this one off as it's really hard to find DP that matches that explosion of color.

I did find a piece of DP in my stash from KI Memories that I felt was pretty close so I went with that.


My focal image is from a retired SU set (Alphabet Soup) which I had yet to ink up.  I colored the letters with various SU markers to match the colors of the inspiration photo.
The sketch I used is an old TECC sketch


 I embossed the Lavender Lace panel with the Hearts Embossing Folder and added some ribbon from Papertrey ink and a heart charm (Making Memories) to complete my card.  I think it turned out pretty cute (if I do say so myself).

Card Stock: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Lavender Lace, Whisper White, Pink Passion.
Ink: Lavender Lace, Pretty in Pink, Yoyo Yellow, Certainly Celery, Real Red
Other: Scallop Border Punch (SU), Nestabiltie Dies, Heart Embossing Folder, Heart Charm, Grosgrain Ribbon, Foam Mounting tape
