CIC201 - Stamp Fairy

The Cupcake Inspirations 200th challenge party's almost over, but first we need to announce the winners. If you entered all of the designers blogs don't forget to visit them again to see if you were a winner.  Thank you to everyone who stopped to leave a comment on my post.  I wrote all your names on little pieces of paper, folded them up, put them in a bowl and choose one.  While I was tossing the papers my husband woke up from his nap and asked a million questions about what I was doing.  He never did understand my answers and he felt left out when I wouldn't let him pull the winning slip.  Too bad, he can have his own contest if he wants to pick winners.  The winner of the $12 gift certificate from A Day for Daisies is Sian Ridley.  Sian, I'll drop you a line when this post goes live to tell you what you need to do.
This week we are sponsored by Stamp Fairy.  You will find the cutest images there, I love the little bears, and if you are a teddy bear lover you could be there for a very long visit.  The inspiration for my card is the flower with the pearl center and the colors.  This shade of blue on the hat is one of my favorites and I was very happy that I was able to match it up with these papers.  Usually I would pick my papers and then match my coloring to it because that is easier but sometimes it doesn't work that way.  For this image I pulled colors from the inspiration photo and then looked for paper that would match.  These are great spring colors so it wasn't a difficult task.  The decorations on the cupcake are also great spring images so it's going to be an easy peasy challenge for you.  Don't forget to link it up on the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog so  the sweeties can see what you created and so that you'll have a chance to win the Stamp Fairy prize.
