A Spring Day...

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. -Rainer Maria RilkeThis week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge is a Gorgeous Spring Bloom Cupcake and the Sponsor is Paper Garden Projects, who let the Sweeties and I play with some of her Gorgeous digital images! I picked the Lenten Rose from Spring Blooms 2 as soon as I saw it, I love the Lenten Rose my Mom has in her back yard and it reminds me of Spring!

I used a pretty bright palette for the card, not at all like the cupcake, but when I saw the ColourQ colors last week I knew I wanted them for my Lenten Rose!

Love this sentiment that comes with the set...
