Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #384 ~ A Color Challenge

Good Sunday morning friends ~ it's time for a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog and this week is a COLOR challenge using Turquoise, Gold and Midnight or colors like them.

Are you ready for the most beautiful cupcake inspiration ever?
I wouldn't even be able to bite into this as I'd want to keep it out on display for all to see.

This week's sponsor is the fabulous 

 and they are generously offering up a $20 gift certificate to their store to the winner so you'll definitely want to play along!

Mary, the owner of Serendipity Stamps also sent each of the design team members something to play along with from her store as well.  What a treat getting to play along using this fabulous Cupcake and Candle Die set.  Thank you so much Mary for your generous heart!
Cupcake and Candle Die Set
So without any further rambling, here's my card:
I started by cutting the cupcake and candle die out twice, once from Gold card stock and once from white card stock.  I colored the white pieces in using Copic markers as a whole die and then adhered the gold outline on top of both.  I then cut a Cherry Lynn Mexican Tile Pattern out of turquoise colored card stock and adhered the cupcake and candle to the center.  I made this into an easel card by scoring the front of the card base in half and adhering the tile on only the bottom portion of the folded card front.
For the inside, I added a piece of plaid patterned paper and a piece of white card stock that had been cut using a Simon Says Stamp "On Edge Thank You" Die.  I colored the "thank you" letters using copics as well.  
See how the die cut words hold the easel card in place?  Isn't that wonderful!!
The sentiment is from PTI's Just Desserts.

Be sure to visit each of the design team members blogs to what they've done with this amazing inspiration and be sure to give them some love while you're there.  Everyone loves to get encouraging comments!
Birgit ~ That's me!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings ~ Birgit

What a great cupcake die set. Love the gold and how it makes the candle look so realistic. That frame is perfect for a card this time of year too as it reminds me of snowflakes. Gorgeous card, Birgit!
