CIC62 - Sending Love Your Way

Hey, Did you hear the news?  The Cupcake Inspiration Challenge now has it's own Blog!!! You can check it out HERE

The cupcakes for this weeks challenge (CIC62) come from, Sweet Frosted Cupcakes. Don't they look delicious! I'm so glad you can't gain weight just by looking at these sweet treats or I'd be in BIG trouble!
My card was inspired by the White/Pink color scheme and the lovely flowers on the cupcakes.  While browsing through the latest issue of, Card Creations - Vol. 8 I spotted a card by the wonderfully talented Kim Hughes (Paper Hugs) on Page 42 that I really liked.  I decided to "case" her card but after I got started my card actually took a few twists and turns and evolved into this card instead.  Still I want to thank Kim for the inspiration.

I hope you'll join in on the fun at the new Cupcake Inspiration Challenge blog.
