Flourishing Cupcake Inspiration Challenge

Hello, friends. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I cannot believe it's Sunday already! Weekends always go by so quickly, don't they? ;)

One of my favorite things about Sundays is the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. This week the CIC is sponsored by Flourish With a Bling, who has provided flourish embellishments for the design team to work with.

Here is the simple card that I created based on the cupcake inspiration photo above. I made those roses myself! Just in case it isn't entirely obvious. LOL This card shimmers in real life, as both the muslin fabric roses and the punched butterfly were painted with Shimmerz angel wingz paint. Also the vine flourish is quite shiny. I need to learn to capture these details better by improving my photography skills. I'm adding that to my to do list... ;)

Today's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge is bittersweet for me as this is the last week that I will be participating as a CIC Design Team Sweetie. Being a part of the design team has been such a wonderful experience, and the super sweet queen CIC Sweetie, Rachel , has been so good to me. I've loved every minute of it! I'll still be playing along in the challenge regularly as this is one of my all time favorite challenges, and Anita Be Stampin will be a regular sponsor of the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge too.

Have a sweet day!
