CIC78 - Hootie says, Hello

Hi,  How is your weekend going?  Seems like the days are just rushing by.  Fall has officially arrived and before you know it we'll be into the holiday season.
In the mean time feast your eyes on these adorable cupcakes that Hope picked out for this weeks Cupcake Inspiration Challenge.  They really are charming aren't they.

This week the sponsor is, Pink Cat Studio and they are offering up 5 images to one lucky person.  We had the choice this week to use our own images or pick one from some selected Pink Cat images and we'll I just couldn't resist using Hootie Pie (don't you love that name) for my card.

Normally I would have colored my image with my Prisma Color pencils but I wanted to do something different so I decided on Paper Piecing Hootie.  My Designer paper is SU (Sweet Pea-Retired and they eyes were from another retired SU pack)  I masked my image first and then lightly sponed on Cameo Coral and Apricot Appeal ink for a bit of a Sunset look.  I loved the colors in the Inspiration photo and hope that I captured them with my card.


My card base is Chocolate Chip that I layered with Cameo Coral and then the DP.  I punched a Scalloped Border and added some So Saffron flowers with tiny blue button brads.  My main flower was punched with my MFT flower punch.  I also added photo corners (EK Success punch).  The sentiment is from Hero Arts. 

So now why not hop on over to the other Sweeties Blogs to see what they have created and then give this a try yourself.

I love the circle decoration with the flowers and buttons. What a great idea. or should I say scalloped border? At any rate it is something that I want to try now. Also, congrats on All About Scraps! Have a great day.
