Oh So Pretty

Aren't these little cakes stunningly beautiful, I could never bite into one of these.  But they are for our inspiration, not for eating.  There's so much inspiration here, what will it be?  The designs on the cakes remind me of many Stampin' Up and Verve sets, almost everyone has a flower stamp similar to this design.  Will it be the colors, that gorgeous magenta and screaming hot turquoise are jumping off my screen.  Will it be the background, those rich fall colors and leave motif are beautiful too.

This week we are sponsored by DRS Designs. DRS allowed the design team to pick the images we'd like to use this week. When I saw the "Brush Beach Sunrise"  it reminded me of my new location, sunny Florida. For the last couple of weeks hubby has been waking me up early for a walk and we often see the sun rising, it is a glorious site, even if I'm only half awake. Those who know me will attest to the fact that I often don't speak a word till I'm up for an hour or two and then it's mostly grumbles. I do not do mornings.  I even have a stamp that says so, so there. But I digress...

don't forget the inside
Here's the deets:
stamp - DRS Designs "Brush Beach Sunrise" and "Fun in the Sun" sentiment; Taylored Expressions "It's a Banner Day 1"
ink - hp printer; Studio G pink pad for the banner outline
paper - Stampin' Up "Pacific Point" cs and "Rich Razzleberry" cs and dsp; the aqua paper had no marking on the back
miscellaneous - copics, Creative Memories cutting system; Taylored Expression "Banner Day 1" die, baker's twine; sun charm
