Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #400 ~ BIG Celebration!

Hello friends~  Today is a big day for Cupcake Inspirations as we're celebrating 400 challenges this week!  

There's so much going on and prizes to be won so you don't want to miss out on all the fun.

To celebrate our 400th challenge we are mixing things up just a little bit this week.  Each of the design team members got to choose their favorite inspiration photo from the past and combine it with this week's birthday theme.  
Here's the inspiration photo I chose from challenge #287 and our birthday inspiration photo:
 Challenge #287 was way before my time with the Cupcake clan but I just couldn't resist those adorable little packages with mushroom cupcakes and fairies.  Now on to my card:

I created rolling grassy hills using Frantic Stamper Stitched Grassy Grassy Hill Edgers with a watercolored sky in the background.  I added some Elizabeth Craft Designs Mushrooms, colored with Distress Inks and a blending tool and a Frantic Stamper Fairy & Flower, colored with Copics.  Some Memory Box Stitched Clouds float peacefully in the painted sky.  

I hope you're encouraged to come visit the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog and join in all the fun!

I'm adding this card to the following challenges:
Double D Challenges ~ Things That Fly
4 Crafty Chicks ~ Punches Or Dies
Simon Says Wednesday ~ Using Dies or Punches
Simon Says Monday Challenge~ Layer it Up
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit

Those toadstools are super cute and your fairy is sweeter than sweet! Happy Birthday! I like what you have created combining the 2 inspirational photos!

What a great interpretation of the two challenges......fairies and toadstools that are so real looking. I have that FS fairy die but could never make it fit on anything. She fits perfectly on your toadstool. What a pretty card with all the different colors that make the eyes just keep moving around and looking at all your card components. Love how the red flower stands out.
