Cupcake Color Cuteness

Oh, my heart be still!  When I saw the GORGEOUS and super delicious color inspiration over on Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog, I immediately knew that I wanted to play along.  How delicious in this color combo?
I used Crate Paper products, and I added in some sea foam green to the mix.  I do have to say, however, that the gold, cream and pink blush colors are super YUMMY!  I inked and machine stitched my patterned papers, added some Crate Paper ephemera, chipoard, and other embellishments, some gorgeous Solid Mint Baker's Twine, sequins in the inspiration colors, and a Melissa Frances rub-on sentiment (happy birthday).  I also used some vintage scotch tape (which is running low, and I can't find ANYWHERE - BOO HOO!!!)
Here's a link to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog (and the other challenges) where I'm linking up my card.  I love this color combo SO much, in fact, that if it's not against the rules; I'll most likely be creating another card using this color combo and entering the challenge again.

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog - Challenge #344 - This is one of the sweetest color inspirations I've seen in a long time (LOVE IT), and I shared the logo above in my post.  I added sea foam/mint green to the mix.  SO pretty!

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Love Is In The Air - This isn't a Valentine's Day card (obviously), but it's a birthday card for someone I love VERY lovely niece.  In our family, birthdays are always a celebraion of LOVE!

Fun Cuts: Faith, Hope and Love Challenge Blog - Alphabet Challenge - "J Is For Jewels" - I used shiny sequins for my "jewels" because I just LOVE them!

Have a wonderful, creative, and blessed week everyone!  And thanks for stopping by.

  4. Oooh, how pretty! I love Crate Paper myself, and all those pieces you used look fabulous together! Also love the stitching! Thanks for joining us over at Cupcake Inspirations!

  5. I simply adore this card! It has your trademark style and attention to all those fabulous details. LOVE the stitching effects that you incorporated. The color palette is dreamy and made me hungry for sherbet or gelato or something equally divine! And wow! Who knew there even was vintage scotch tape? I can see why you love it and hope that you will miraculously find some somewhere! Really lovely work, Karen, and thanks so much for supporting our Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenges. I always look forward to your entries!
