CIC #174 - A Little Birdie

Welcome friends - hope you are having a GREAT weekend!!

Welcome back for another Cupcake Inspiration - here's our picture:

I think these cupcakes are just adorable!! I didn't have a specific image for this one, so instead I went with this cute little birdie with inspiration from the blue frosting - yummy (minus the fish - HA)!!

The layout is Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #165; I struggled a bit with the banner/flag strips - more so because I don't have a die for this shape; I have to use my square punch to cut the end of the flags...and you KNOW how challenged I am to do things straight/even. LOL

That's okay; love how it turned out. Papers are from My Mind's Eye - love how they match perfectly with the image! I printed a 2nd digi image and cut out the flowers and mounted with dimensionals - can you see how raised they are? Image was colored with Copics and colored pencils. Buttons are from PTI; two stacked together and tied off with some jute twine.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you'll join in our inspiration challenge this week! Have a great Sunday!!

Hugs, ~M.
