Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #409

Welcome to the next Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #409!  This week the challenge is to use the provided color scheme (shown at the end of this post) on your card or project.  Our sponsor this week and the prize is from the Cupcake Inspirations blog.  All of the details, including prize information, can be found on the Cupcakes Inspiration blog.  I hope you'll play along!

For today's card I wanted to go with a nice, bright card using the color scheme.  I do admit that I threw in a couple of colors that are a shade darker than the color scheme to give it a little extra pop that it needed. I started by diecutting that large label from Catherine Pooler's Lovely Flowers & Banners dies.  The flowers are also diecut from that set.  I stamped the flowers with the coordinating Lovely Flowers Stamp set, also from Catherine Pooler's Stamp of Approval collection.  The real magic though is the ink.  Have you tried Catherine's new ink collection?  Oh my word!  I am in love with it!  Seriously some of my favorite inks ever...so bright, so vibrant and you know how I love color!  And it's dye ink so it dries quickly!  The sentiment is a combination of Catherine's Lovely Flowers Stamp set & the Fill in the Blank Happy Birthday stamp set.

For the background, I die cut Lil' Inker Designs Cover Up Die: Diamond Lace and then backed it with pink cardstock.


Here is the challenge color scheme.  You can use the photo for inspiration but you don't have to, as long as you use the provided color scheme. I hope you'll join us this week for the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #409!  Thanks for stopping by!
