{The Place to be Happy is Here...}


Good morning and welcome to another week at Cupcake Inspirations! This weeks inspiration picture is beautiful, and oh so yummy:


 Our sponsor this week at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #104 is "Paper Pretties" and they are graciously giving away 1 free stamp set for the challenge this week!



My card for the challenge this week features a stamp set from Stampin' Up! called "Garden Whimsey".  I used A•Muse Studio pigment inks to achieve the pretty dual tone color on the tulip blossoms. I stamped them three times on the paper, and then twice on another sheet of card stock. I cut two of them out with paper snips and added attached them with foam dots. The patterned paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Material Girl collection. To finish off the card I machine stitched around the card and added blingy brads to the corners.  If you get a chance this week we would love for you to join us at Cupcake Inspirations!

                  Today I am playing along with the following challenges:
