Cupcake Inspiration - oh yum!!

Hi all!  I was really thrilled to have made the Top 5 over at Cupcake Inspirations last week (for this card here) and then was asked to their guest designer for this week - double thrilled!  So this week there is a really yummy cupcake inspiration and here is my take on it....

 


Isn't that bird a little cutie?  It's called a little bird told me and it's by Robyn Fetish who are sponsoring this week's challenge and here is the cupcake inspiration....



Gorgeous colour combo, don't you think?  I used some of the very last pages of my My Minds Eye Stella & Rose Hattie (from Quixotic Paperie here).  And couldn't you just eat two or three of those cupcakes in just one sitting?!  YUM!  Anyway, less of my stomach talking...I hope you are inspired to join in this week's challenge and, if not, go take a look at the design team's creations here - they will definitely tempt you!


I used sketch #20 over at Lora's Crafts...


Okay, that's it from me this weekend - enjoy the rest of your Sunday!


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, My Minds Eye Stella & Rose Hattie (from Quixotic Paperie here)
Mediums: Copics
