Butterflies and Cupcakes

This is my second post for the day........if you're looking for the Shopping Our Stash post, it's directly below!

We've got such a YUMMY looking inspiration photo for you at our {Pin}spirational Challenge #12 beginning today!!!   Be sure and stop by and look at all the inspiration from the DT!  Submit your entry for a chance to WIN!!!


Ok, looking at the inspiration photo I saw cupcakes, butterflies (or maybe a dragon fly), and some blue and brown.  So I used the colors (Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, and just a tad of brown on the butterfly wings) and of course the butterfly!  I used my Memory Box die and then placed the butterfly (Flores Suaves from SU) in the center.  I believe the sketch is from Card Patterns from several weeks ago.


See....YUMMY looking - right!

We'd love to have you come on over to {Pin}spirational Challenges and play along! 
Thanks for stopping by.............

I don't know which is the most yummy -- the cupcakes or your card. I love that die cut behind the butterfly! The plaid paper and the Swiss dot embossing go perfectly together. Magnificent colors in the butterfly!
