Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #9...

A life without love is like a year without summer. -Swedish Proverb

Sorry I am SO late today, I have barely been home this whole week and was gone for all of the last 2 days...

I have a fun weekend that included lots of sun and a few yummy cocktails, so I thought this yummy cupcake by Applegum Kitchen was appropriate! Happy Summer!!

I would love to have you play along and create a card inspired by this cupcake...if you do, please link your creation in the comments section of this post and use Keyword CIC9 if you upload it to an online Gallery.

I used the colors, the drink and the striped background as my inspiration and this is what I came up with...

The layout of this card is from THIS sketch from Stamp Something.

Stamps: Flower Drinks, Cheers to you MA (a muse art stamps)
Paper: Kraft CS (Memory Box,) Wonderful (Pink Paislee,) Kitchen Dot (a muse)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento,) Copic Markers
Misc: Clear Crystal Dots, Jewel Stickers, Crystal Stickles, Pop-up Glue Dots

Thanks for stopping by, remember to link your entries here!
