da Bomb

This week Kenny K Downloads is sponsoring the Cupcake Inspirations challenge CIC159 and that makes me excited because the design team gets to pick an image to use.  Well I fell in love with this one, she's "Da Bomb".  You should be excited too because you have the chance to win a Kenny K prize.  So get out you crafting supplies and make something that's inspired by our cupcake photo. 

There's a lot of colors and patterns on these cupcakes. So for this card I picked some papers that had decorated circles as the motif. There's so much color in the photo I think just about any paper would match it.   Have fun picking out what you'll use, if you're not having fun you've got the wrong hobby. 

We can't wait to see what you create so don't forget to link it up on the challenge blog.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Kenny K "Da Bomb"
ink - hp printer; Tim Holtz "Faded Jeans" distress ink around image
