CIC59 Paper Flower Inspired

Here is my entry for this weeks Cupcake Inspiration Challenge.  Hope selected these delicate cupcakes (which are really more like round petie fours rather then cupcakes but aren't they pretty!  I wanted to do something in a delicate shade of pink but didn't really have any colors of pink that matched so I went with brighter shades.
I saw a layout that I liked on the Clean and Simple blog and decided to go with that.  After I was finished with my card I realized that I had the sentiment in the wrong place (oh well, it's done and I'm sticking with it.)  I had already made my flower using punches and tissue paper so the layout seemed the perfect choice to use the flower with.  Then I just received some new "goodies" and decided to use some of my new Cosmo Cricket - DeLovely designer paper for my card and my new Optic Dot -Martha Stewart punch.  My sentiment is from Annabelle Stamps(Jasmine's Cupcake) set.  I also used the Moroccan Screen embossing folder, some retired SU ribbon and a flower brad (source unknown) to complete my card.

If you haven't already checked out the other enteries on Hope's blog for this challenge be sure to pop on over and check them out.
