Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #113

Edit:  Won 2nd place at Catch the Bug Challenge

Good morning stamping friends.  It's Sunday again and do you know the great thing about this Sunday??  Many of us don't have to dread going to work tomorrow because it's a holiday!!!  Yes, it's Memorial Day and I wanted to take a moment to honor all those who have sacrificed everything for our country.  What brave souls and so very patriotic.  Bless all that have loved ones they are thinking about today.

Another great thing about this Sunday... it's time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!  Yepper... let's have some fun.  Here's my card created from our cupcake inspiration photo...

Heeheehee!  Doesn't she just make you giggle?  At least smile!!  This is a digital image from our sponsor, Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  It's called Molly Moo - sunflower.  I think I've fallen in love with Molly!  Now for our cupcakes photo that will provide your inspiration this week ...

Aren't these great??  So many flowers... such bright colors... a coupla little bugs.  Fun!!  I hope you'll find some inspiration and come play with us.  It was great fun coloring Molly up in these bright summery colors!  I decided to keep the colors restricted to my image and the matting cardstock.  For my DP, I embossed some white cardstock with a flowery folder as I thought that design fit perfectly.

Then I decided to add some sun to this sunflower image.  The little sun I used is from one of those little $1 clear stamp sets.  I don't use those a lot, but they sure come in handy for the right projects!  BTW... I'd meant to add a bubble cap over the sun's face, but I forgot.  Well... I forgot before I took the pics, but it has a bubbled face now.  The bubble cap just fit absolutely perfectly!!  I didn't want to rework the photos I'd already taken, but I did take one extra photo...

Back to our sponsor, Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  They are awarding 7 (yes I said 7) images of the winner's choice.  That's totally worth joining us this week, isn't it?  And a little more of a plug for them... they are having 50% off everything in the store through May 31st.  That makes an image like Molly Moo - sunflower yours for a mere buck and a half!!  Go... go have fun and get you some bugaboos.
