Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #93

Edit:  Won Top 3 Featured Card honors at The Sweet Stop #90

I'm late... I'm late... for a very important date.  It's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge today and half the morning is gone already!!  ARGH!!!  But I'm here now and ready to share how this week's cupcake photo inspired me.

This is an image from Bugaboo (our sponsor this week) and the first time I saw it, I couldn't help but say 'awwwwwwww'!!!  Could you help it when you saw her?  : )  So of course, she was the image I chose for this challenge.  Why, you ask?  Well... here's our inspiration photo for this week's challenge...

Fun, right??  I just love these cupcakes and their colors and cute little baby cutouts.  I don't make baby cards very often so when I'm given the chance to do so, I love it!  As I said, I love these colors and was able to work them all into my card, except for the orange.  I probably could have included some orange, but just thought that would be a bit over-the-top!  And aren't my two DPs great?  I did not buy them together, but ended up with two colors of the same pattern!!  Perfect challenge to use them together!!  hahaha!

As noted above, our sponsor this week is the very fun Bugaboo Stamps.  They have sooooo many absolutely adorable images.  If you're not familiar with them, I would suggest you pop over to the store and look 'em over.  I don't think you'll be disappointed.  Oh... and the random winner will receive 7 images!  Yep... that's right... 7!!!

I hope you'll have time to go visit the other 'sweeties' creations as I'm always blown away by their wonderful projects.  And this week, our Guest Designer is Marjorie at Mommy Scraps.  I hope you'll stop by her place as well.
