To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring. -George SantayanaHello! Time for another Cupcake Inspiration Challenge! This week I am focusing on Fall...Football has started and the air is just starting to get a little crisp in the mornings here in Boise and it makes me excited for Pumpkin Pie, cool air and all the colors of Fall! This week's Cupcakes come to us from Happiness in a Bite via Flickr...aren't they Pretty?!?!
I have lots of Leaf stamps and pretty Autumn paper, I'm sure I even have an acorn somewhere, but I have been Dying to ink up the new Savannah from The Greeting Farm, so I decided to play with the colors more than the theme...
I colored her with Copics and then added lots of sparkle with my normal Stardust Stickles, then added some Liquid Pearl dots along some of the details on her dress and feather. I suppose she is a Can Can dancer, but when I first saw her I thought of Southern Ladies back in the Civil War Era, hanging out on the big wrap around porches trying to stay cool in the Southern heat and humidity!
The layout is this week's Eat Sleep Stamp Bonus Sketch (turned to vertical,) make sure to play along so we can get 52 participants and get a chance at a $52 Prize!!! It also works for this week's Anyone for Anya Challenge (Funky Flowers) and the Basic Grey Challenge (Embossing.) I used Indian Summer papers and the new Fleur De Lis CB folder, plus some new pearl swirls and felt flowers from Zva, the yummy ribbon is from PTI. I added sentiment from Verve on the inside, plus more paper and another felt flower, this one prettied up with a little Prima Crystal Center...
