A Spring Garden

Every week I find myself asking "Where does Rachel find these photos?"  These are some amazing cupcakes and they are the inspiration for this week's Cupcake Inspiratons challenge CIC104.  The sponsor this week is Paper Pretties, a company that is very near and dear to my heart.  I'm very luckyand proud to be a member of their design team 

The inspiration for my card came from the vibrant spring colors.  They are so cheerful and I just happen to have a new pad of paper that features spring flowers.  The image is from the new digtal set "Easter Babies".  It's being sold as a fund raiser, all the proceeds from the sales of the set (minus the paypal fees) will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  Since they are a digital set they will be immediately available for you to use, just in time to get your Easter cards or projects started. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Easter Babies" digital images
ink - HP printer
paper - MFT "Banana Split" cs for mats; Stampin' Up "Certainly Celery" cs for mat; Georgia Pacific white cs; K & Co "TC Cottage Garden" dp
miscellaneous - copics; Recollections mini brads; Spare Parts pin; charm; rick rack; sewing machine; Nesties "Big Scalloped Rectangles"

don't forget the inside
