Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 310

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Hello, hello!
You know I have to play along with Cupcake Inspirations Challenge... This week is color challenge, and this combo is so very pretty!!

Pretty, right!?
That cupcake liner reminded me of one of the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Pack. So that was the first thing I grabbed. 

This is my first time using the Vellum Pack since I got it in March. I know, I'm always behind...Ha Ha 
I put the liquid glue behind some of the images so it won't come through. I love vellum but sometimes you have to be creative to hide adhesive and not always easy...don't you agree!?  

I placed the back of the vellum up because the images looked softer.
My little butterfly was punched out first then watercolored with the Soft Sky and So Saffron Reinkers. I don't think you can see it but I added some glitter on the edge of the wings with my glitter pen. Of course I had to do the same on my layered sentiment as well, it just looks dull without it now!

I tried several different flowers before I made this one. I didn't really want a 3D because it doesn't fit in a regular envelope, but this one looked just right with my pretty leaves. I went over the edges of the petals with the glitter pen, why not!?

This card turned out to be way better that I pictured in my head, I love when that happens! Of course the total opposite happens too and when it does, I just walk away from that card...Ha Ha :-D
