BC Awareness - Pretty in Pink

Greetings peeps - sorry to disappear on ya! Boy I did not feel good Saturday, but we had big plans Saturday night - just one of the girls and me. I went sans makeup and fixed hair - EEK - yes, I seriously went out into public with thousands of others. tee hee

You can see what we were up to HERE (at least I HOPE this link works)!

But today I was able to finish up some crafting AND its my last post for Paper Cupcakes for 2012; thank you Nina, I always love the opportunity to color your cupcakes. Yes, I know you draw tons of other things, but I LOVE your cupcakes...and this one was another love! Nina whipped up this gorgeous Breast Cancer Awareness cupcake topped with an apple blossom. The meaning behind the apple blossom is "hope, good fortune and good things to come"; pretty fitting wouldn't you say?



I used Verve's week 5 sketch over at Splitcoaststampers, you can see it HERE, some DP by MME, a bit of sewing, lots of layering and finished it off with this gorgeous rosette ribbon (instead of a sentiment) - the ribbon was originally all white, but I spritzed it with a soft pink from glimmer mist.

I cut out an additional apple blossom and leaves, mounted with dimensionals and then lightly curled the leaves for a more realistic look.

Thanks for stopping by; be sure to join us over at Paper Cupcakes this week!

Hugs,
