Cupcake Inspiration #20


Today is another Cupcake Inspiration Challenge with the Sweeties from Hope Stamps Eternal! Isn't this cupcake just beautiful? I hope you get lots of creative vibes from it!

I'm not a lover of purple, and avoid it as much as possible but I worked it for this challenge, and hope you like what I came up with!
My flowers are all painted with Angel Wings Shimmerz for extra sparkle, and I used some new May Arts jumbo rick-rack that I got on a recent shopping trip! I decided to add just a little splash of one other color to coordinate with all the purple, so I added some yellow flowers and a yellow button. The layout for my card was inspired by another Sketch for You to Try from Jen delMuro.
We encourage you to play along! Leave a link to your creation on Rachel's blog so we can all see what you created! Rachel will post a Top 5 from all the entries next weekend, so who knows... it could be YOU!

See what the other Sweeties have created for this challenge, and please help us welcome a Guest Sweetie, Maureen!

Gorgeous, Tammy!! What a yummy-looking cupcake--too good to eat, and you have captured it perfectly with your beautiful card! I think you should challenge yourself to use purple more often.....gee, I know where else we could do that! :P
