Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #369 ~ Great Outdoors

Good Sunday morning to you all~  Today starts a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations and this week is a theme challenge.


This amazing cupcake inspires thoughts of camping and roasting marshmallows on an open fire. 

Our sponsor this week is My Grafico and they're giving one free digital set, winner's choice, to the winner.  Once you see their images, you'll definitely want to play along. 

 You don't have to use their images to play, just use what you have and have fun!

I used images from Cool Caravans that they so generously gave us to use.  Thanks so much!  I really enjoyed creating with these images!!

Since the colors on the images were so fun and playful, I went in that direction while creating my backgrounds as well, using fun printed papers and some landscape dies.  The sun is from Lil' Inkers and the clouds are from Taylored Expressions.  The sweet flag is one of the images from the set and I used it to stamp my sentiment on.

I've had a request for some retirement cards and thought one of these campers might fit the bill perfectly.  The fun banners are from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I printed the sentiment out on my home printer and cut it using a stitched rectangle die.  

Here's the inside of this card, using one of the flower graphics from the same set.  I love the bright, fun colors!

On this card, I added some stitched Pine Trees from Poppy Stamps and a Lil' Inkers sun.  I think they go perfectly with these Cool Caravans!

 Be sure to hop on over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog to see what the other amazing designers have come up with and then join in on the fun!
