CIC196 - A Day for Daisies

I love the cupcake for this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge CIC196.  I could look at it for hours and use it for inspiration over and over again. It looks gorgeous and it looks like it's tasty too.  Pink is my favorite color.  When it's used in apparel it's very flattering.   When it's used in cards it's soft and feminine. This week we have the perfect sponsor for a pretty, pink and feminine card, A Day for Daisies.  I love the images there and I'm sure you will too.  If you're not familiar with them take a look around the shop and take a look at what the sweeties have created using the ADFD images.  Then make your card and enter it in our challenge so that you have a chance to win the prize.
My card uses the color theme as well as being influenced by the photo.  The pink designer papers look fabulous with the kraft card stock.  A little more feminine touches are added by the pearls and the frame around the sentiment.  So that's my card, I'd love to see what you make so don't forget to link it up on the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog.
Here's the deets:
ink - hp printer
paper - My Favorite Things "Kraft" card stock; My Mind's Eye "Lost and Found - Blush" dp
miscellaneous - copics; pearls; baker's twine; Stampin' Up Hodgepodge Hardware Styled Vanilla
