Sponsoring Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!

Have you heard of the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge? For each challenge they post a YUMMY cupcake photo and color combo for inspiration! Everybody likes cupcakes, right?

The current challenge going up today features this adorable image:

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #299 - Cute Critters

We're sponsoring this challenge so If you head over to their blog and play along you have a chance to win a $20 store credit to our store at! How awesome is that?

Of course I had to play along -- here's the card I created. I was inspired by the cupcakes with the zoo animals and took out the Wild About Zoo set. I wanted to mimic the cupcake designs so I stamped the lion, zebra and elephant and punched out just their faces with a circle punch. I colored them with copics and then found coordinating papers to frame them up like on the cupcakes in the photo! I added the "wild about you" sentiment from the Wild Child  sentiment in a circle too!

To finish it off I added a strip of yellow paper embossed with a polka dot embossing folder in the big shot and some pink and white bakers twine. I love how this turned out! So fun!
