Cupcake Challenge (DT Entry)

Okay, Okay enough time has passed and enough people have said so many kind words about my work that I've decided to just keep on trying! I promise not to whine when I don't make it again. I'll just suck it up, chalk it up to more experience and keep on going! LOL I promise!

So I have been challenge blurfing lately - I love all the different challenges out there and I came across the Cupcake Challenge Blog thru someone else's blog - don't ask me who's at this point it's all a blur now! It just so happens that their challenge this week is ALSO a DT entry. I was extremely inspired by their picture:

Is that not the brightest, crispest picture ever! It just makes me smile with the promise of spring and cheerfulness. I absolutely love fresh cut flowers and daisy's are just flowers that make anyone smile. So I decided my inspiration from this photo would be a Clean And Simple (CAS) card. I love these cards. I think it takes a lot to make a card looks special and creative with little to no layers. On this card I didn't use any DP and just created a border around the stamped image with my Scor-pal. Then of course, it needed a touch of embellishment with ribbon and some baubles (LOVE those things). So here is my entry:


Stamps: Stamping Bella (Maisy Sunshine, Sentiment)
