Cuppie Inspired!!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday...still :)

Here is my card for today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS, IC166, and for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge, TECC54!!

As soon as I saw today's Inspiration Challenge, I just knew I wanted to pull out my cuppies! That cupcake pillow was so inspiring!!

For this card, I used A Year of Sweets 1 and A Year of Sweet Sentiments from Taylored Expressions Stamp A Sweet Impression!! These cuppies are SO much fun to color!!

I LOVE pink & red together lately, so that is what I went with for this card. I paper pieced the cupcake *liners* with different Real Red patterns from Prints Pack. I colored the cuppies and hearts with Copic Markers, and their cherries, as well as the hearts, got a layer of Crystal Transparent Glitter by Art Institute Glitter. I used this glitter ALOT...I LOVE that it is still transaparent and the coloring can still show through.

I framed my image with a rectangle nestie, popped my sentiment up on bunches of circles, added some piercing (y'all know I LOVE my piercing!!), and added some soft pink Gingham Ribbon. The background is a piece of Pretty In Pink DSP from Prints Pack that I ran through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder!! The brads are Sugarcoated Brads by Doodlebug Designs (LOVE those!!).

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Gotta go make dinner but I will be back later!!!
