Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #80

Happy morning friends.  Looks like it's going to be a great day in our area.  I'm looking forward to heading out to my mom's and let the grandkids and dog run around outside!!  Plus, lunch is always great!!  : )  Well, it's Sunday, so we have a new Cupcake Inspiration Challenge for you today.  Here's my card...

This image is called Two Roses and is from this week's sponsor, A Passion for Stamps.  Isn't that image just stunning?  A Passion for Stamps kindly allowed the DT to use one of their images and I just couldn't NOT chose this one!!  I'm a huge fan of roses.  Oh... and the inspiration...

Beautiful, right?  I didn't really do this photo justice as it has other gorgeous colors.  It was really hard to decide which to go with!  I was going to attempt a two-tone rose, but that got away from me!!!  : )  So... simple yellow roses, one of my favorites!!

I sure hope you can join in our challenge this week.  A Passion for Stamps will be giving the random winner four (4) digital images of their choice.  I hope you'll go take a look around their blog.  There are some wonderful flower images and others as well.

Other challenges:
Crafty Creations - the SKETCH
One Stitch at a Time - use your digi stamps
Craftalicious Challenges - anything goes
Karbers Challenge - go digital
