Hi! I excited to share my very first Cupcake Inspiration Challenge with you as a "Sweetie" - Just look at these wonderful, fun cupcakes. Who wouldn't be inspired by them? This weeks challenge is being sponsored by Whimsy Stamps
For my card I used the Hang In There image. Isn't that turtle just adorable! I was inspired by the fun colors in the cupcake photo as well as the different textural elements. I colored the turtle image with Prisma Colored pencils and lightly blended a background in around the image and blended with Gamsol.
My card base is Bermuda Bay, layered with Rose Red, a layer of Basic Gray Lemonade DP, and an embossed piece of Old Olive cs. I added a punched border of So Saffron and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. The bling are Pineapple Sprinkles (Annabelle Stamps). I even managed to do some stitching around my card. This is the hardest thing for me because I've never been able to get my Janome Sew Mini to sew half way decent since I bought it and sewing is just not my thing. The punched flower was made using my new MFT Dies.
Contact me if you have any questions on how this card was made.
Don't forget to stop by the other Sweeties blogs (links are on my sidebar) to see their great takes on the Inspiration photo. Then give it a try yourself and link back on the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge Blog so we can see your creation.
