The Card Concept #84

The Card Concept is back!  with a Sweet Inspiration, indeed, for Challenge #84:


Think I could resist this gray and pink?  Nope!  I quickly got out my E.H. UWF Concord & 9th Sweet Sprinkles for the cupcake base, and sentiment.  Then topped it off with my 'icing' flowers - it's not the first time I've done this - nor will it be my last!  Altenew's Beautiful Lady was the perfect choice!

I give you my "Classic playful" [is that a style?] cupcake:


Thanks for hanging out with me again today!  It sprinkles my day with happiness...

Always glorious creations, Michele. And I adore the floral topping to your direction. Definitely icing florals are the perfect 'sprinkles'!

Now that is the prettiest cupcake ever! Love the soft colors of your beautiful little flower arrangement. So clever to put it in a cupcake holder. You always think out of the box. You're always such an inspiration to me Michele!

Luscious and scrumptious looking cupcake. What a clever idea to use a flower stamp as the frosting. I wasn't following you back when you used this idea before. Love the soft grays and pinks. Adds such an elegant touch to the card. Oh and the sentiment makes me all kinds of happy. Wonderful work! You are a master card creator!

Such a lovely card, Michele! Your icing flowers are just beautiful and are perfect for the challenge! I'm also loving how you layered your papers...especially that you chose vellum to showcase the diagonal stripes...just perfect in every way, my friend!

Patti said...

L, I love the way the pink flowers pop against the soft gray background, and the vellum gives the card such an elegant feel. Once again, you rocked this neutral palette.
