Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #31

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 cupcakes, how cute are those mushrooms and ladybugs?
Even though they were super cute, I ended up taking my inspiration from the small white flowers with yellow centers. I used my Bella Blvd Plastino stamp set and some Zva Creative tiny flower shaped rhinestones (mixed crystal wheel) on this card. Hold on to your hats ladies -there is NO pattern paper in this card! I created my own by embossing the flowers, stamping the leaves and embellishing with rhinestones!!

And, Swiss Dots... oh how I love you? Let me count the ways -uh, you make a great accent strip, great background piece and great texture on embellishments! You would NEVER know I have tons of other folders, LOL!! The layout is from the Fall To Layout #65.

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 !!!

Now head on over to my fellow HSE Sweetie's and see how they rocked those cupcakes!! And we have a Guest Sweetie for November, a warm welcome to my fellow Verve Diva, Teresa!!

  5. Kudos to you for creating your own designer paper, Michelle! I love to create my own when I have the time, too. Your card is really beautiful! I agree about the dotted swiss embossing folder. It's so versatile, and I love the look. I hope all is well with you. Still miss you being a part of DDC.
