Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Sponsor!

Have you heard of the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge? This is such a fun Challenge Group! 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 yummy image:

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?

I was inspired by this challenge to get out our Versatile Vases stamp set and create a floral card. I haven't used this set in awhile and I really love the little jars and vases in it! I stamped the image of the Jar and flowers onto watercolor paper with waterproof ink. Then I added some color with Inktense watercolor pencils. The "hello" sentiment is also from our Versatile Vases stamp set!

I tried to keep it simple - I like the airiness of the inspiration photo so I left a used a lot of white on the card. I embossed a piece of white with a flower embossing folder to add a bit of texture. For a bit of color on the base, I used a piece of patterend paper from my stash that had just a tiny bit of sublte blue pattern on it. I love how this turned out!
