Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #16...

Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things. -Edgar Degas

This week's Inspiration piece is brought to us by LeCupcake via Flickr...I love the fun retro feel, the simple flower and the Warm coral with the cool blue.

I went with the cool blue of the icing and the flower as my inspiration, my pink is Much more pink than the warmer coral of the cupcake...I used Lemonade from Basic Grey b/c I can't stop using this stuff, it is So pretty!!! The layout is this week's sketch from Amy R.

I punched the Retro Flower from the solid pink in the 6x6 pad and shaped it a little with my stylus, outlined it in Stardust Stickles then layered on a Felt Flower and a half back Pearl. The sentiment is from the Sentiment set from The Greeting Farm.
No sentiment on the inside, my Grandma ordered more Thank Yous and Birthday cards, I like to keep it simple for her...Supplies:
Stamps: Sentiments (The Greeting Farm)
Paper: Lemonade (Basic Grey,) Scarlet Jewel, White (PTI)
Ink: Soft Sky, Cranberry Crisp (SU)
Misc: Stardust Stickles, Retro Flower Punch, Velvet Ribbon, Circle Nesties, Dot of Pearls, Corner punch, Felt Flower Cozy
