Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #104

Welcome friends!  Happy Sunday to you all!  Today, we have another fun and inspiring Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  I hope you'll join in with us this week.  Trust me, you'll have a blast!!  Here's my sample for this week's cupcakes...

What do you think??  Tell you the truth, I love this card!!  It's bright with a fabulous image, great papers, and fun embellies.  What more could you ask for??  : )  Now... time to share the inspiration photo for this challenge...

Aren't these ca-yute???  Can anything say spring better than these flowery cupcakes??  I don't think so!  And I love the colors!  I just can't imagine all the time it would take to make all those little flowers!!  At least for me it would take forever!!

Our sponsor this week is Paper Pretties.  They've got some awfully cute images!  The lucky random winner will receive a stamp of their choice.

This sweet image is one from Tiddly Inks and is actually a freebie!!!  Can't get any better than free, right?!?!  He's one of the Bumble Bears and is called For You.  I got all the cupcake colors in those flowers, but you can't even tell there are yellow ones in there!  I should have colored the flowers from lighter big ones to dark for the small flowers.  Once again... live and learn!!
