Cupcake Inspirations #373 ~ A Theme Challenge

Hello friends, the summer just continues to fly by and it's time for a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations blog and it's ooey gooey and scrumptious!

Yes, the challenge is to make the inside of your card as sweet as the outside.  I confess that I often leave the insides of my cards blank so this is a good challenge that I should use with every card I make.  

This week's sponsor is the Greeting Farm
They're offering up a $25 gift certificate to the winner.  So what do you have to lose?  Join in on the fun, make a fabulous card to brighten someone's day and you could be the next winner!!

Now on to my card:
I had a request for a masculine birthday card and this challenge was coming up so it seemed like a perfect match!  For the front of the card I used Clearly Besotted "Recipe For Love" and PTI's "Bowl Of Sunshine".  After stamping each image multiple times using the Misti, I outlined each image in a very soft, light grey Copic marker.
To make the inside sweet, I added a pop up element using Sugar Pea Designs "Bring On The Cake".  I decorated the back panel and fussy cut the cake and applied it so that it would pop up when the card is opened.

I hope the inside of this card is sweet enough for the recipient and brings a smile to their face.  
Now be sure to visit each of the design team members to see their delicious batch of amazingness and then hope on over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog and join in on the fun!
Birgit ~ That's me!

I'll also be adding this card to the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

The sweetness of your card's outside is matched by the sweetness inside! You've 'baked up' a fantastic card!
