Cupcake Inspirations #375 ~ A Theme Challenge

Good morning friends and happy Sunday!  Cupcake Inspirations has a new challenge up today and it's a theme challenge.
"BOWS" ~So be sure to incorporate a bow on your project!

There is no sponsor this week so our generous team leader is offering up some ribbons from The Ribbon Resource

Aside from including a ribbon on my project, I was also inspired by the fun colors and touches of gold in this week's delightful inspiration photo.  This is what I ended up with:
I started by adding a piece of printed scrapbook paper to the top corner of a white card stock base.  I added an MFT Gerbera Daisy and some Layered Leaves cut from Gold.  I added a coordinating ribbon and bow along the angle.  The sentiment is from PTI's Bold & Beautiful Sentiments.  I stamped the small part of the sentiment in black and heat embossed the main part in gold.  A few sequins to add a little bling.

Be sure to visit the other designers to see their scrumptious batch of fresh baked inspiration for this weeks challenge and then stop by the Cupcake Inspirations Blog to join in on the fun!
