Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #98

Edit:  Won top 3 honors at Aly's Sunday Challenge #ACS35

Happy Sunday stampers!  Welcome to another round of Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  This week our inspiration is one of the lovliest cupcakes I've seen for some time (and I like them all).  So... let's get on with it shall we!  Here's my card...

And... for the inspiration...

Well... what do you think??  Gulp... fabulous, right???  Love these colors!!  They are just so pleasing to my eye.

I do want to let you know that we have a couple new Sweeties starting with us today.  They are Chris, Veronica and our Guest Designer this week which is Melissa Bove.  I urge you to wander over and take a look at their blogs and leave them a little love.  And don't forget our regular Sweeties too!

How do you like that fabulous flourish??  Our sponsor this week is Flourish with a Bling.  They generously provided the DT (before our new Sweeties came aboard) with a couple of their wonderful products.  Isn't this one yummy??  I love that its puffiness gives added dimension.

I do hope the flourish looks OK.  I'm not very good at working with them, stamped or otherwise.  You can't image how many angles and positions I tried before opting for this version!!  hahaha!  Another item I need to add to my 'need to learn' list.

Other challenges:
Friday Sketchers - the SKETCH (at least my starting point)
Flutter by Wednesday - anything goes (with a butterfly, fairy or angel)
Ooh La La - for someone special
I Did it Creations - bling it up
Crafty Creations - three little words
