Here are sweet-peas, on tip-toe for a flight, With wings of gentle flush o'er delicate white, And taper fingers catching at all things, To bind them all about with tiny rings. -John Keats
This week's Cupcake Inspiration was a Vintage Flower Cupcake by Cotton Candy Bakeshop, I took the colors of the cupcake and toned them down for my card. I thought the flower frosting looked like a Sweet Pea so I grabbed my Favorite Flourishes stamp set Sweet Peas and got to work...with the Brocade Blue, Pretty in Pink and Mellow Moss card stock my card turned less vintage and more...well 80's bathroom?
Overall...despite the temptation to put out seashell prints and hang a shower curtain I do like the way the card turned out...I went pretty simple for the inside...just threw in the saying from the stamp set and added some 2nd Gen stamped Sweet Peas...
