Floral Cupcakes...

Truth is what works. -William James
Hi there! I am a little in shock! It is Monday and I am here with a card for this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge! LOL :) It has weeks since I was this on the ball!

I pulled from the Delish Pinks, Greens and Browns for my inspiration, plus the super cool swirly frosting tops. I used my Inka Cupcakes set (remember, all Inka is on Sale!!!) and colored them with Copic marker and used a little bit off Origins paper by Basic Grey, I love this pad because it has these nice simple grid line sheets plus the more bold florals we all expect from Basic Grey. The flowers are cut out and popped up, edge is punched with a Martha Stewart Edger and then I added some yummy Zva Pearls (for Joanne B's Challenge.) I also Faux Stiched around the image for the Just Us Girls Technique Challenge.

I added just a little more of that yummy green grid paper to the inside...Supplies:
Stamps: Cupcakes (
Origins (Basic Grey,) Mellow Moss, Whisper White, Blush Blossom (SU)
Tuxedo Black (Memento,) Copic Markers, Chocolate Chip Marker (for Faux Stitching)
Stardust Stickles, Pearls, Glue Dots, Paper Piercing Tool, Lace Ribbon, Martha Stewart Edger, Vintage Buttons, Hemp Thread
