Now it's time for the Blogger Challenge and my entry for the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge - I combined the two challenges with this card.
Doesn't that cupcake look divine! I just love the soft inviting colors and wanted to create something with a "Vintage" feel to it.
For the Blogger Challenge we were given this sketch:
I chose an old SU stamp set appropriately titled, (Vintage Postcard) for my focal image. I lightly sponged on Cool Caribbean and Green Gable ink and then stamped the image with Chocolate Chip ink. I mounted the image on Pixie Pink cs. My card base is Pretty in Pink layered with Cool Caribbean embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder. Then I layered a panel of Gable Green and designer paper by My Mind's Eye (So Sophie). All the panels were distressed with the Cutter Kit distressing tool and I brushed on some Green Gable ink as well.
My flower was created using the Boho Blossoms punch. I punched out 5 flowers, wrinkled them up real well, brushed on Pretty in Pink ink, added some glitter and a Ice Circle Brad. (I cut the prongs off the 2 brads on the sides) I also used some retired pink ribbon from SU. I used the (Just a Note) sentiment for the inside of the card.
