Cupcake Inspiration challenge sponsor

Hi everyone!  I have some fun news to share today -

I am sponsoring this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge!  

Remember way back when, when Rachel had her store Hope Stamps Eternal, and I did a CIC challenge each Sunday?  Well, Rachel has continued with the CIC challenges and has set up a fabulous challenge blog.

So for this week's challenge, I have offered up the fabulous Ippity stamp set, Music of my Heart as a prize!  Being an Ippity Chick is FUN!!
 Click here to play along for your chance to win: Cupcake Inspiration Challenge blog Here is this week's cutie cuppie:
Here is my card - NO do not adjust the color your screen!  Turned out my card didn't really match the cupcake -LOL! 
OK, so I really wanted to use some of my sadly neglected Webster's Pages, Life's Portrait papers and they just didn't match.  Oh well... I used them anyway!  The flower is from the fabulous Ippity set, Now and Always.  I just love piecing each part of the bloom with a different pattern paper.  It was a lot to cut out (I stamped each striped petal separately to keep the stripes oriented the same), but worth it in the end.  And the butterfly?  How adorable are the wings in the stripes???  The sentiment is from the Ippity set, Just Wanted to Say.

All of these Ippity sets and more are available for purchase on my Ippity Sales Blog.  AND, Ippity is getting ready for the Summer 2010 release!  The sneak peeks and prize giveaways start TODAY and go through Thursday when the sets will be available for purchase!!  You can check out the peeks over on the Ippity Blog -cute stuff!  I will share peek graphics on my blog as well.  You all will LOVE this release!  Here is a snippet of the fabulous set, House a Home:
