Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #101

Good Sunday morning my friends!  Hope you're having a great weekend and that it continues through today.  Man, it feels like ages since I've posted.  I guess Feb. 23 is ages ago!!  Anyway... here we go again with another fun Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  I think You'll really enjoy this challenge.  Here's what I came up with this week...

And what, you ask, might this week's cupcake look like to inspire a card such as this?  Well... here it is...

Isn't that gorgeous??  This is truly one of my absolutely favorite color combos!  Green, purple, white...lovely!!!  Doesn't Rachel do a wonderful job of finding these incredible, edible cupcakes???

Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Paper Garden Projects.  They kindly gave each DT member a choice of images and I chose this lenten rose image.  It's part of a lovely set called Spring Blooms 2.  I hope you'll take a few minutes to go browse around their shop.  The really have some lovely images.  And the lucky winner this week will receive a $20 store gift certificate to have fun with!!  I hope you'll join in this week.
