CIC197 - Freckled Fawn

It's time for pretty heart shaped boxes full of candy.  I love the fancy boxes and save them for storing embellishments.  This box full of treats is the inspiration for this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge, CIC197 which is sponsored by Freckled Fawn.   If you're looking for Washi tape the place to shop is Freckled Fawn.  But be warned, you're going to have a hard time choosing, and tape could easily become your next obsession. 
For my card I was inspired by the shapes and colors in the photo.  Pink is my favorite color and I love to pair it up with brown, throw in some red to punch it up and I'm a happy camper.  Then hearts and pearls embellishments to finish it off, does it get any better?  I really enjoyed making this card, I'm looking forward to seeing what you make inspired by this photo so don't forget to link up your card on the Cupcake Inspirations blog.                                          
Did you notice the challenge number is 197.  We're getting closer to our 200th challenge and we're really excited about it.  There's several sponsors so there's going to be lots of prizes. In the meantime stop over to the challenge blog and leave a comment, a prize will be awarded to one of the fans.
