Gosh it seems like I am always rushing to get my Cupcake Inspiration Card done in time to post it before Hope's deadline. I knew this week that I just had to participate since I sent this photo to Hope. I subscribe to the Taste of Home cooking magazine and this was one of the photo's in an issue. I thought it was just so pretty and cheerful. I was inspired by the Bright Flowers, the cute little ladybugs on the cupcakes and the Grass Wrappers.
For my card I wanted to use my brand spanking new stamp set designed by Anna Wight for Whipper Snapper Designs called, Beautiful Day I decided to paper-piece the flower and used SU designer paper (Haiku-retired) I colored the flower center with a Yellow Marker and added Lemonade Glitter (Art Institute). The adorable lady bug was colored with PrismaColor Pencils and I highlighted the spots with a Black Atyou Spica Glitter Pen. I used a Cloud/Grass Template and then cut the grass out to create my little scene.
