Cupcake Card by Larissa Heskett for Newton's Nook Designs
Larissa Heskett  the used the cupcake from our Love à la Carte stamp set stamp set to create pops of color against a gray background! I love how the colors pop! She also used the "hello" sentiment from the Winged Wishes stamp set! 
Tessa Wise the used the sugar stamp from our Love à la Carte stamp set stamp on this fun card! Isn't the bright teal and pink combo so pretty?

What a cute scene with Newton created by Danielle Pandeline! She used 3 different sets - the Kitty from Newton's Holiday Mischief, the squirrel from Sweetheart Tails and the "hello" sentiment from Winged Wishes! So fun!  Love the polka dots on his belly!'

And a card from me :) I used the snuggling kitties from the  Newton's Antics stamp set and watercolored them to bring in the yellow. Then I used patterned papers and a green card base to bring in the other colors!
