Fall To Cupcakes...

This very moment is a seed from which the flowers of tomorrow's happiness grow. -Margaret Lindsey

You are probably wondering what this card has to do with cupcakes...but it really does! This card was inspired by this week's Cupcake Inspiration piece, I loved the bright colors and flowers. I used this week's Fall To Layout and went Very literal, I almost CASED the sketch to a T....but failed to see where the sentiment was supposed to go until after I had stamped it on my image panel...
I used Basic Grey Green at Heart paper and paired it with Melon Berry and a bright green from DCWV, the button is Hibiscus Burst. The stamp is from an older CTMH set, I colored it with Copic markers then added LOTS of Stardust Stickles for this week's Creative Cottage challenge (Sparkle.)

For the inside I used a small strip of the striped paper, punched with the Upper Crest punch like the front...
Stamps: CTMH & Stampavie
Paper: Green at Heart (Basic Grey,) Textured Card (DCWV,) Melon Berry & White (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento,) Copic Markers
Misc: Vintage Button, Embroidery Floss, Upper Crest Border Punch, Stardust Stickles
