Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #92

Hi folks!  After missing last week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge, I'm tickled to be participating again.  So, without further ado, here's my card...

Isn't this gal just adorable!?!?!  She's a Motivet stamp I picked out  last year and never got around to coloring her up.  Now I have and it was so fun working with her.  Quick and easy to color, yes... even for me!!!  haha!  Now for the CIC inspiration photo...

These are just great, aren't they?  And just about anything in there for us to use as inspiration... butterflies, flowers, hearts, dresses, squigglies and who knows what else is in there that I can't quite make out!  Well... as you can see, I've found my inspiration from the colors.  Red, white and black are always great to work with and my little image worked great for these colors too.

I went with the simple layout, an embossed strip (with my latest embossing folder) and some roses to add a little bit more pretty.  Everything went together so well on this.  That's pretty unusual for me.  I so often struggle with what paper and what design, etc, etc.  Not so much with this card.  This DP came to mind immediately when I saw the photo for the first time.

Our sponsor this week is Karber Digital Images.  The winner of this week's challenge will get to choose two images of your choice!  I hope you'll have time to join in this week.  Karber's has some really cute images!!
