Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 348

Sunday, February 21, 2016

Hi lovelies, Happy Sunday ;-)
It is time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!
This week's sponsor is Newton's Nook Designs!

Such a pretty color combo!
Here is my card...

I absolutely LOVE these colors!
So fresh and crisp, just so pretty!!

These beautiful love birds are from one of the NND January release "Darling Duos". I ordered this set as soon as they became available last month!
I mean, look at them! SO.PRETTY.!!!!!
I water colored this lovely couple with Gumball Green and Soft Sky, then fussy cut the image. I also water colored some scrap with Gumball Green then die cut the sentiment. 

I punched a couple of branches in the Gumball Green cardstock with the Bird Builder Punch, then just tucked them underneath the love birds.

I just got a pack of Linen Cardstock, it's so beautiful!
I used the Distressed Ink with just a little bit of water, I love how the grains are shown!
All it needed was some sequins, LOVE IT!!!
