Good morning, I have a gorgeous cupcake to share and get your mojo flowing....this cupcake is covered with teals and browns. What a fabulous color combo, I really like SU Taken with Teal and it's not in the new cattie...I will have to see if Mikey's has a color in Bazzil to compare. On with today's card, This is this weeks Cupcake Inspiration, CIC64....I used a really deep chocolate Bazzil paper and the teal houndstooth SU Sweet Pea designer paper. The sentiment is Verve Wishing You (Verve is having a release this Friday, JUNE 25..I will be peaking sets later in the week) and the big ole flower is from the Ippity set Now and Always. I layered the flower and added a little stickles and a dark brown button. Speaking of buttons, I had bought a bag of buttons at Hobby Lobby(in PA, we don't have one near me) a year ago; anyway I thought the buttons where a mix of soft green, blue, and plums. I discovered last night that they are a deep chocolate(I had been looking for deep chocolate) I felt like I had hit the jackpot...lol. I was under my trusty Ott light and seen that they are truly chocolate.....what a wonderful surprise! Back to the card, I added a piece of ric rac, it is paper but it sorta looks like ribbon. The die is from PTI, I also added a row of stitching. I hope you have a wonderful day and I surely hope you will play along with us, you can see the all the other sweeties creations at the Cupcake Inspiration Blog. I used the Clean & Simple sketch, FTL95...luv the sketches over there, check them out! Enjoy!
