Happy Spring ~ Sweet Sunday Cupcake



I had a ball coloring with my new stamping supplies today...I paired up two challenges, Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #63 with this fun square layout and...



the Rachel's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #53 over at Hope Stamps Eternal. What a fun spring-like inspiration with an explosion of color!



I stamped the images, then colored them in, attached some coorinating buttons tied off with twine. The main image was layered onto a scallop circle, then adhered the card base that includes a large scallop border and some yummy patterned paper. It wouldn't be a Stacey Original without a big yummy bow:)



This card also fits the bill for:
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays: Week #34 Wings
Paper Craft Planet: Challenge #8 - Sweet Springtime Inspirations
Something Completely Different: Week 45 - W for Wings
Color Create Challenge Thursdays: Challenge #41 - Pastels
Fab & Funky Challenge: Week 17 - Spring is in the Air
The Pink Elephant Challenge #61: Nature Theme

Happy Spring...what better way to celebrate spring than to get crafty!



Stamps: Springtime Doodles (PTI)
Paper: Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores CS, Green Bouquet DP (PTI), Whisper White CS
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Momento), Copic Markers
Other: Plum Pudding & Hawaiian Shores Vintage Buttons, Button Twine, Hawaiian Shores Grosgrain, Large Scallop Die (PTI), Cirlce/Scallop Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Big Shot
