HSE Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #1

Rachel over at Hope Stamps Eternal has started a fun new weekly challenge - a cupcake challenge! Every Sunday she will post a picture of a cupcake and we are to use that picture as a source of inspiration to make a card, scrapbook page, or whatever your heart desires. You do NOT need to use cupcake stamps, just take whatever you want from the photo and CREATE! You can go with the color scheme or choose to follow the theme of the cupcake or whatever happens to pop into your mind at that moment when you see the cupcake inspiration! (keep reading until the end of this post there is a PRIZE involved!!)

This was the photo for today's challenge:

As soon as I saw this picture I was inspired to ink up my brand new PTI set, Little Lady. And of course I had to use the color pink, too!

STAMPS: Little Lady (PTI), Mixed Messages (PTI)
PAPER: Pirouette Pink, Real Red, Basic Black (SU), White (PTI)
INK: Palette Noir

OTHER: Scallop Border punch (Martha Stewart), Stardust Stickles (Ranger)

Now it's your turn! Create a card inspired by the photo and leave a comment on Rachel's post with a link to your blog or gallery entry (use keyword CIC1 on SCS or Paper Craft Planet). Link your creation before next Sunday, because one random participant this week will win $10 toward the Hope Stamps Eternal store!!
