Asian Cupcake Inspired...

Don't be afraid to make a mistake. But make sure you don't make the same mistake twice. -Akio Morita
Hey there, hope you all had a great weekend! I got a little time to stamp in between hanging out with friends and watching football. I pulled out a fun Asian inspired Inkadinkado stamp to work on my Cupcake Inspiration Challenge card, I love the shape of the flowers! I used this week's SCS Sketch for the layout, I wasn't sure what to do about the triangles, but when I tried out these photo corner punches I was really excited about how well they went with the look of the card. I added Stickles all over, because that is the way I roll. :) I also added some half back Silver Pearls just like the ones on the cupcake. The back strip is embossed with a Cuttlebug Folder and then glittered up with MM Glitter paint. (just a touch b/c I had some left on a brush! :D)

Here is a look at the sketch and cupcake challenges:

And here is my card in all it's glory...
I used an Inkadinkado sentiment on the inside and stamped a bit of the image (2nd generation so it wasn't too bright) on the corner...
