Give Me the Cupcake...

CIC114 Inpsiration photo
 ...and no one will get hurt.  Don't you just want to eat a lip smacking good cupcake.  I feel like whipping up a batch of yummies every week when I work on this post.  I don't want to eat the cupcakes in the photos, I want to eat one of Ina's Coconut cuppies.  But I digress...

It's time for another challenge from the sweeties at Cupcake Inspirations and what a beautiful group of cupcakes you've got to be inspired by.  This week the challenge is sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads.  This week's lucky winner will receive 5 digis or 2 stamps.  BUT WAIT, everyone's a winner because Di's Digi has a free download available.  It's called "Demure" and she's adorable, she's the image I used for today's card. 

I chose to use the colors, flowers, swirls and pearls from the cuppie photo.  I was going to make a butterfly but for a change I decided that less is more.  What will you pull from the photo?  I can't wait to see your creations and if blogger is being a good boy this week you might even find a comment from me on your blog.  So get cracking and make a card or project and post it on the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog using the linkey thingey.  You can find all the challenge details, and some more inspiring cards made by the rest of the design team by clicking here.

Here's the deets:

paper - MFT "Whipped Cream" cs for base; Recollections grey cs for embossed layer; Colorbok violet cs for mat; Georgia Pacific white cs for image
