Paper Sweeties May Inspiration Challenge #18-'Cupcakes & Sprinkles'



Hello Friends!
This is my second post for the day.  Please scroll down to see my post for the Dies R Us Challenge!

Happy May 1st!  I'd like to share with you today a card I made for the Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge!  All you need is to be inspired in any way with the above photo to join the challenge.  I was inspired by the colors, cherries, and theme of cupcakes and sprinkles!  Aren't those awesome cupcakes...yummm!  Please enter the challenge as many times as you wish until the end of the month.  The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate and an invite to be the guest designer for the following month!  Come on over and join the fun!
Here is my card...
For my card, I started with a blue card base and added gingham scalloped circles and doilies.  More layered scalloped circles with stamped cupcake for focal point.  The stamp set and coordinating die that I used is Sending Sweet Thoughts Bundle.  I added stickles to the cupcake for frosting and topped it off with a cherry button.  Red seam binding ribbon tied with yellow twine to finish off the card.
