Cupcake Inspiration challenge #25

Hi everyone, it's Sunday and that means it's time for another FABULOUS Cupcake Inspiration challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal! Check out this week's Orange-y goodness!
My card uses a Miss Anya image from The Greeting Farm, this one is Rain from the Rain, Snow, Shine set. I was inspired by the fall colors and leaves on the cupcakes and picked out some of PaperTrey's new Autumn Abundance DP. LOVE it -LOL!! She is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Markers. The amazing gold detailing on her trim and buttons is from an Opaque paint marker (from Marvy) called Liquid Gold -isn't it the neatest?!? The felt flowers are Zva Creative from the Cozy mix.

Lately, I have been going with silver pearl accents, but these colors just called for gold -thankfully Michael's makes BOTH! Oh yeah, I went there! The sentiment is computer generated, and is the standard Comic Sans font.

Here is a picture of the inside. I do something I almost never do, I covered a piece of chipboard! The DP I chose to cover it is the Summer Sunrise piece of PTI's Bitty Dots DP. I used a couple SU punches, some more gold cord and pearls for the detailing.

Everyone is invited to play along in the challenge!! If you do, be sure to link your creation to Mr. Linky on the HSE blog. Every week, Rach highlighs the top 5!! Congrats to this week's Top Picks!!!

If you upload to SCS or PCP, be sure to use keyword: CIC25.Now head on over to my fellow HSE Sweetie's cards and see how they rocked those cupcakes!!
