Our inspiration cupcake for this week:
All these cupcakes remind me of my Spirograph game I had when I was young - SO LOVED THAT GAME! But I was continually drawn to the flowers and so wanted to make more flowers using 14 count Aida cloth (thanks Queenie Poo for the idea)!! So, that's what I set off to do!
I used Jen's Sketch for You To Try for May - it's a good one; be sure to check it out! I used some really old My Mind's Eye Paper (Quite Contrary) for some bright and fun colors - not to mention fab florals and polka dots (ahhhh...delightful)!!
I actually have 2 layers of the Fine Linen; the bottom layer is the base card; the top layer is a bit smaller and embossed with large polka dots from Cuttlebug embossing folder.
After cutting the flowers out, I spritzed them with Pink Cadillac Glimmer Mist, added some machine stitching, some faux glass beads, fun ribbon and even a scallop on the inside cut from Aida cloth.
I made this into a Mother's Day card using Verve Visual's Because of You Stamp Set (You have been my inspiration, my confidante, my friend. Because of you I've learned to love, to forgive, and to live a life filled with purpose.).
TFL! Hope you have a great day!!
