CIC69 - Daisy

Hi! Wow it's been a few weeks since I've participated with the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge (CIC) and I've missed it.  Life has just been super busy this summer but I'm happy to say I'm back today with a card for the challenge.  Just look at that wonderful cupcake, who wouldn't be inspired by how lovely and refreshing it looks (not to mention yummy)!
I knew right away what stamp I wanted to use for this challenge.  It's been in my stash for awhile and I've used it once or twice but I just had to dust it off again so without further ado here is my card.

I stamped the cat and daisies - Third Coast Rubber Stamps
on Kraft (now known as Crumb Cake) cs with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Prisma Color pencils.  I highlighted the Daisy centers with Lemonade Glitter.  Then I sponged on some Tempting Turquoise ink and then took my cloud template and lightly sponged some White craft ink around in a sort of random pattern as I really didn't want it to look like clouds but rather a misty like look (do you think it worked?) - I added some pretty white half pearls.
The card base is Tempting Turquoise layered with Whisper White, DP by Cosmo Cricket. I added a punched layer of Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive that was embossed with the Swiss Dot Embossing folder.  The cat was mounted over a circle of Garden Green.  I left off a sentiment and figured one could be put on the inside later on. 

Hope you'll give this challenge a try.  It's alot of fun.

this is a great inspired card ida, I really like your sponging technique-it did create a misty look
