Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #394: Color

Welcome to the next Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #394!  This week the challenge is to use the provided color scheme (shown below) on your card or project.  Our sponsor this week and the prize is from Stamplorations.  All of the details, including prize information, can be found on the Cupcakes Inspiration blog.  I hope you'll play along!

For my card I started with a patterned paper that is one of my all time favorites! I wish I had a stack of just this one pattern (sadly, this was my last piece)!  I die cut the red balloons from Lil' Inker Designs Love You More Hearts & Balloon Die Set.  I 💖💗 this set!  I also die cut the strings from this set as well.  The Hugs was die cut several times and then glued together.  This die comes from the LID Brush Script Valentines Day Word Dies, which is another new favorite die set!

To finish the card off and to add that little pop like you see on top of the cupcakes, I used little white matte finished enamel dots.  

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 #394!  Thanks for stopping by!
