Cupcake Inspriations #121 - JLJ Designs

It's time for another amazing Cupcake Inspirations challenge!

This week we are sponsored by JLJ Designs; another great place to purchase digi images and AMAZING digi paper - in fact, Jen designed some new polka dot digi paper specifically for this challenge - talk about ADORABLE.  Yea...my plan was to use that new polka dot paper but my printer did not feel that was necessary - HMPH!!!!

AND the amazing Cupcake Inspiration picture - how cute is THAT?  LOVE it so much!  And since my printer did not want me using the new digi paper, (hmph again), I decided to focus more on the colors...and of course I went with a cupcake image - this one from Verve Visual!

The layout is Viva la Verve August, week 1 - super sweet layout  As you can see, I didn't use the heart but instead reached for a big ole doily - dang, I love those things!  I want them in all different sizes...hint, hint for anyone buying me a Christmas gift.  LMBO!

The rest is straight-forward stamping and layering, nothing too fancy.  BUT this card is made for a very, very special young lady.  It's for our daughter's boyfriend's sister - hope she likes it!  I love the little heart button and I've seen others have some fun with extra twine from the button so I decided to play along with that new trend too!

Go ahead; take some inspiration from that super cute dinosaur cake and join in the fun!

...delicious dinosaurs...

Hugs, ~M.

  1. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Hmm, can you tell I love it Michele? Fabulous coloring and I love purple/green together - for some reason it always makes me think of spring. The doily behind your cupcake is perfect and really makes your image pop!

  2. I love the purple and green too! Nice happy card and hope this week isn't so busy for you!

  3. Very pretty card
