I hope this week's Cupcake Inspirations CIC208 photo doesn't make anyone go off their diets. This cupcake looks like one you can find in any bakery or maybe even your local supermarket. I'm just about ready to jump in my car and throw caution to the wind to get my hands on one of these. Thankfully I'm already in my pajamas and I'm too lazy to get dressed just to get some cake.
This week we're sponsored by Stampotique Originals. I've long been a fan of this company. They've got some of the most fun stamps around. Before my last move I had a few Daniel Torrente stamps but now I cannot find them. Hopefully, they'll turn up soon.
For this card I choose to use "Nerd Cat" and the sentiment "Happy Unbirthday". Since I used the colors for my inspiration this week I used pinks and browns for both the coloring of the image and for the papers. But this image could be used for a masculine card too. If you have a cat or your recipient has a cat you can color the cat accordingly and the glasses and shirt can be done in masculine colors or even paper pieced. This sentiment is just plain old fun. I love it.
You should visit the Cupcake Inspirations challenge blog to get some more inspiration and see what the other sweeties have made then get busy and make a card for our challenge. Who knows? Maybe you'll be the winner.
