sweet...

Happy Thursday!!

Today's my day over on 365 Cards...We're still celebrating
Paper Popsicles week!

Today's challenge:

Picture This - use the photo of cupcakes as inspiration.

Now it's your turn to use the photo above to inspire your card.

You DO NOT need to include a cupcake on your card, but you are certainly welcome to.

Well, I was the lucky duck and had the opportunity to play with the Paper Popsicles Cupcake Card:

Although you can't see it, my card base is Speckletone Kraft. I layered it with Stampin' Up Pretty in Pink for the frosting...the 2 layers are swiss dotted with my CB and on pop dots. The 'cupcake liner' is vellum that I ran through my crimper...cripes...I had to dig that thing out...The cherry is a MM felt flower, topped off with a PTI vintage button and SU twine. Why yes, that is Pure Poppy Swiss dot ribbon that I've been hoarding..LOL. I layered another PTI vintage button, SU twine and an A Muse sentiment.

I'm sooooo going to enjoy seeing everyone's take on today's challenge...
