Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #20...

Do you have your sweet tooth handy??? It's Sunday, so that means Cupcake Time!!! This week's Cupcake is a Stunning Creation by Creative Cupcakes! I know a lot of stampers have a hard time with Purple, so this week is a True challenge for some of us...but I Dare You! I Double Dog Dare you to try it! :) Cupcake stamps are Not required...and actually neither is purple...take your inspiration where it comes...if it is the butterflies or the roses or the metallic cupcake liner, go with it!

I went with the purple and the roses for my card and actually used a Cupcake this week! The layout is this week's Mojo Monday sketch and I went a little overboard on the "Stuff," I call this the Purple Embellishment Eater! :D

I used one of the new Inkadinkado $1.99 sets, Cupcake and Basic Grey Wisteria paper. I added Pearl Dots, Jewel Stickers, Dew Drops and Stardust Stickles all over...I even added stickles to the violet roses! The swirl is outlined with a Sakura Stardust Gel Pen and I even added a stickles frame around the image panel...

I added more paper and a glittered up Felt flower to the inside...

Stamps: Cupcake (Inkadinkado,) Swirly Greetings (Elzybells)
Paper: Wisteria (Basic Grey,) Purple CS (Bazzil,) White CS (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento,) Copic Markers, Purple Mettalic Chalk (Colorbox)
Misc: Martha Stewart Branch Punch, Pearl Dots, Jewel Stickers, Felt Flowers, Violet Roses, Stardust Stickles, Stardust Gel Pen, Dew Drops

I am super excited this week to Welcome a Guest Sweetie to the Challenge...Maureen of My C.A.S.E. Studies has been on my radar for awhile now and I am so pleased that she accepted my invitation to join us!!! Here is a little peek of what Maureen created for us...
