Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #45

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Well, I'll probably be watching the big game solely for the commercials. LOL! Weird? I was an Advertising major in college and the Super Bowl ads are the ones to watch as I was taught. I mean those big companies spend big bucks to get the spots, so they better get some awesome ads made to get their money's worth!! =)

On to my card for this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. This week's inspiration was suggested by a reader - Lori King! She has a pretty awesome blog, so please hop over and say hi to her! Here is the photo she provided:

I would never be able to eat that cupcake! So much work was put into making it. Here is my card inspired by this photo:

As soon as I saw Lori's photo, I knew that I had to use this Gorjuss Girl stamp for my card!

The cat is just purrfect for it, don't you think?

I also used purple from the photo to color Gorjess Girl's outfit and the base color of my card. You can find more adorable Gorjuss Girl stamps at Sugar Nellie Stamps.

That's all I have for today. Don't forget to go and check out what other HSE Sweeties came up with! Here are the links:

Hi Alice :D I love your take on the cupcake challenge. I think the girl & kitty are so sweet. Good luck with the challenge.

As for the versamark pen I found it really useful for touch ups where the stamp & paper haven't quiet gotten together properly. Also for embossing only certain parts of stamped images. Hope that helps xoxoxoxoxoxo
