CSS Alumni Blog Hop

Hi, everyone! I am excited to be participating in my very first StampTV CSS blog hop! Woo hoo! If you've been hopping along then you've just come from the ever talented Giovana Smith's blog.  If you've just joined us, then head on over to the main forum over at StampTV and start at the beginning so you don't miss out on all the beautiful cards!  ;)  

So, our challenge was to make a card using this beautiful and yet, scrumptious looking set of cupcakes as our inspiration:

Here is what I came up with:

Can you guess which cupcake I based my card off of?  ;) The pink one of course! That gorgeous impression  you see is an embossing folder from Sizzix's "Damask Set."  I used Gina K Pure Luxury card stock in Chocolate Brown as my base.  The cute daisy is from the Spring Mix Stamp Set.  I added the pearls to match the piped icing dots on the cupcake!  :)  Who said card making has to take lots of time!  (If you know me, you know my creating takes for-e-ver, so I was really proud of myself for making a CAS card in just a few minutes! Yea!)

Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by, now head on over to Jen Charboneau's blog to see her beautiful take on our inspiration photo!  :)


Blessings, Janice :)
