If It's Sunday It Must Be Cupcake Time

Once again I cannot believe the amount of work that was put into this cake.  It's gorgeous isn't it?  But would you want to cut into it to eat it?  For me, the more sculptured cakes are the least appealing to my appetite.  Which is a good thing, cause I certainly don't need to be eating cake.  On the other hand when I see lots of buttercream or whipped cream icing I start to salivate and can't wait to have a piece.  My favorite is chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream icing, maybe a flower on top, yummmmm, but I digress...
The Sweeties are challenging you to make a card or project inspired by this cake.  You can do with a theme, or the colors or whatever the photo inspires in you. 
This week the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge CIC108 is sponsored by Wild Rose Studio.  They've generously given each of the design team a stamp which happen to feature Fergus the Dragon.  He's an awfully cute dragon.  But there's way more than dragons in this shop.  I'd like to mention that there's a new "For Men" section.  I'm always saying I need more masculine stuff, if you're like me, you might find some stamps and paper there that will round out your stash.

Isn't Fergus cute, cute, cute!?

Are you ready to play, well stop over at Cucpcake Inspirations to read all the challenge details and after you've made your creation you can link it up there.  Of course you're going to want to see what the rest of the design team had done with Fergus.  You're gonna love their cards.

As you can see I've chosen to use the lavender and green color scheme from the cake and the dragon stamp is perfect for this cake.  What will you make?  I can't wait to see what you come up with.
