Dizzy - Cupcakes A Swirl

Dizzy my head is spinning.....Well not really but that's what those fun circles in the latest Cupcake Inspiration Challenge brought to mind when I first saw them.  Hope really does a great job finding such fun and interesting cupcakes to challenge your creativity and this one is no exception.  I love the colors, they look so refreshing and pretty together.  For my card I took my inspiration from the colors, the flower and the circle patterns.  Next up I decided to use Taylor's Cupcake Friday sketch and this is the result of both challenges.  For this card I embossed the circle embossing folder on Cool Caribbean cs and brayered Close to Cocoa ink over it.  Then I stitched a piece of DP (DCWV) and distressed the edges.  I layered this to Cameo Coral and a base of Chocolate Chip cs. 
I stamped the cupcake (Hero Arts) on Whisper White cs and colored it with Prisma Color Pencils.  I added Crystal Glitter (Art Institute) to the frosting and popped up the flower with mounting tape.  This was layered on 2 pieces of Designer paper (Bo-Bunny) and Chocolate Chip cs.  I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink and added a Coral flower along with a Brown Felt flower and Turquoise brad to complete my card.
Be sure to stop by both Hope's and Taylor's blogs to see what others have come up with for these challenges.  Have a great day.
