Cupcake Inspiration challenge #42

Hi everyone! It's Sunday and that means it's time for another FABULOUS Cupcake Inspiration challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal! Check out these cutie cuppies!!
I took my inspiration from the AWESOME colors on these -they are a PERFECT match to my current favorite paper, My Mind's Eye Be Loved. I had a bit of trouble deciding on a card layout. I started one, then gave up and did another. THEN went back and finished the first. So, I have TWO cards today!!

This first card uses the amazing little image of Miss Anya Love from The Greeting Farm. Isn't she super sweet? Makes a perfect birthday card. I colored her with my Copics and added some yellow stickles in the center of the flowers. The sentiment is from Verve's Circular Sayings.

My second card uses the newly released Verve Plain Jane, Be Mine. LOVE this image!! I did another circle card -man these are addicting. They are easy to put together and they make such an impact! Again, I used My Mind's Eye Be Loved, some of my $1 twill ribbon, and some tiny pearls from the Zva Creative pearl wheel!

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 and use CIC42 when uploading. Every week, Rach highlighs the top 5!!

Now head on over to the Sweeties and see how they rocked these cupcakes!!!!
