Cupcake Challenge CIC71

This week a came across a very cute challenge blog that I am playing along with for the very first time! The name of the challenge is "Cupcake Inspirations". This one was so cute, so I could not resist joining along. Here is the inspiration picture:
Now what you have to do is design a card inspired by the colors, and elements of the super cute cupcake pic! Here is my card for the challenge:

I used the new Stampin'Up! set "Just Believe". It is one of my very favorite sets out of the entire catalog. I used SU Early Espresso, and Pumpkin Pie classic inks, and Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, and Very Vanilla card stock. The flower was made using Pumpkin Pie DSP from the clearance section on the SU website. It's perfect for fall and at 3.99 for a pack you just can't beat it. The card was accented with vintage lace, and the new scallop ribbon punch from SU. I distressed the edges of the card with my SU paper distresser, and Early Espresso Ink and a make up sponge. Thank you for visiting my blog today and play along with this weeks Cupcake Challenge if you can!
