Mmm cupcakes!!

I'm posting cards two days in a row, can ya believe it?! Well this one came together quite quickly, so it's not THAT shocking, really. :-) Today I'm breaking from my goal of featuring the stamp companies I adore, but only briefly - next post I'll be back with another one!! This fun and yummy card was inspired by a beautiful butterfly card created by sweet Lisa of papergrace cards & crafts. She's one of my Twitter buddies and shared the photo on there - as soon as I saw it I felt an overpowering urge to CASE it! :-) But even though I own a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, I couldn't help but reach for the cupcakes instead! My color combo came from this week's Color Throwdown - Elegant Eggplant, Bordering Blue & Rich Razzleberry. I hope they don't consider it cheating that I added all that Kraft! LOL! So with a beautiful card as inspiration and the color combo figured it, it's no wonder this one came together quickly! I ran the tops of my cupcakes through my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is one of my favorites, I use it all the time, especially when there are cupcakes involved! It's from a set by Flourishes. I don't know about you, but I'm totally craving a cupcake now!! I'm off to find one - thanks for stopping by today!
  • Stamps: Sentiment from Flourishes
  • Paper: Kraft, Bordering Blue, Elegant Eggplant, Rich Razzleberry
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories: Martha Stewart cupcake punch, SU ribbon, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, Making Memories straight pin, embroidery floss
