Cupcake Inspirations #378 ~ A Color Challenge

Happy Sunday folks!  It's time for another Cupcake Inspirations challenge.
This week is a color challenge using Ocean, Kraft and Chestnut or colors like them.  Just look at those low-cal cupcakes our amazing team leader chose for this weeks inspiration.  YUM and YES PLEASE!

I'm so thankful that I only have to use this as inspiration and not be a taste tester because this would take me days on the treadmill to work it off and I think it would taste way to good.  ;0)

Our sponsor this week is one of my favorite die companies, Frantic Stamper!
They are generously giving away a $20 gift certificate to their store so you'll definitely want to play along as not only do they make the most awesome selection of dies around, but they also sell tons of other great items.  Be sure to check out their store!!

The owner of Frantic Stamper sent us their very own Frantic Stamper Delicious Cupcake Die Set to use for this challenge.
Frantic Stamper Precision Die - Delicious Cupcake (set of 6 dies)
Thank you so much!  I enjoyed using this die and will continue to enjoy using it for years to come!

Now, are you ready for my card?
I started with the Frantic Stamper Basket Weave Card Panel cut out of white and placed it over the blue card stock base.   I cut the cupcake out of white card stock and colored each piece using distress inks and copics and assembled the cupcake.  It looks good enough to eat, doesn't it?

I then added some sparkle using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to the cupcake, candle flames and stars.  The "Celebrate" and stars are from Frantic Stamper Stars and Stripes Photo Card.  I used copics to color in the Celebrate sentiment in an ombre style and placed it on a double ended fishtail banner from MFT.

That's it from me today but I do hope you'll check out all my other talented "teamies" to see their fabulous inspiration for this challenge and then join in on the fun at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
