CIC #101 - Birthday Blessings


See, I told you I'd be back later with another card. lol  I'm really excited to bring you another Cupcake Inspiration challenge.  We have another fabulous sponsor, and the cupcake this week is fantastic!

This weeks challenge is sponsored by The Paper Garden.  They have some wonderful stuff in their store, and some adorable stamps and digi images that are fabulous for coloring.  They're being generous enough to offer this weeks lucky winner a $20 gift certificate to the store.  You should go check them out.

And now, for this weeks cupcake inspiration photo.  Isn't this gorgeous?!  Click HERE for this weeks challenge.

Wow, it looks so beautiful and I just want to stare at it. lol  I love the contrast of the icing colors and the deep chocolate of the cupcake itself.  Mmmm!  Here is my card based on this delightful, yummy treat.

I used the Tulip digital stamp set, and colored them with my Copics.  I cut out two of the flowers and popped them up, although you can't really tell from the photo.  I used THIS sketch, and lots of elements for added dimension.  I love this card! The colors are gorgeous together and I love the small pop of yellow, not to mention the Fleur de Lis embossing folder.  I cannot wait for Spring! 

You must head over to see what the other Sweeties have created for you today.  So amazing!

Have a great day!
