The Card Concept #31

Hi friends!
It is time for another fabulous challenge at The Card Concept!

 This week we hope you are inspired by the photo below to make any type of card.

The yummy cupcakes inspired me to create a Clean & Simple birthday card.  I did some watercoloring on the frosting which was cut using a die from Serendipity Stamps.  This is a full cupcake die but I cut off the frosting so that I could make the bottom a different color.

I stamped the sentiment using second generation stamping to create a shadowed sentiment.  I was inspired by Catherine's video in the Technique Toolbox classroom.  It is a great technique.

Stop over to The Card Concept blog to see what the other girls have created in all of the different styles.  I just love this challenge just for this reason!  It's great to see all the different takes on one inspiration photo.

Thanks so much for stopping in!  I hope you get the chance to play along too!

Stamps:  The Big, The Bold and the Happy (Winnie & Walter)
Ink:   Raspberry Fizz (PTI), Early Espresso
Paper:  Early Espresso
Accessories:  Cupcake & Candle die (Serendipity Stamps)
