Cupcake Inspirations 300th Challenge Celebration - Color Inspiration Day 2

Hi there!! Today is day two of the fun COLOR Inspiration Challenge for our Cupcake Inspirations 300th Challenge Celebration! (Don't forget, there's still lots of time to play with the SPARKLE Inspiration Challenge as well!)

My card today showcases product from some of our fabulous sponsors - Fresh Brewed DesignsThe Stamping BoutiqueWinnie & Walter, and Your Next Stamp 


I didn't really have a good Chartreuse color in my paper stash, so I went with Summer Starfruit. It's a little more yellow that I'd like, but it was as close as I could get. I laid a piece of Designer Series Paper onto a Pool Party card and offset it with a bit of Whisper White cardstock. Then I started laying on all the party embellishments! I loved the little bunting from the Cupcake Banner image at The Stamping Boutique - it kind of reminded me of the bunting in the inspiration images so I knew I had to use it! I colored and cut only the pieces I wanted to use and attached them to my card with some Pool Party Baker's Twine. Next I added some fun loopy border from Your Next Stamp die cut from some more Summer Starfruit. The cupcake is from the Buggy Cupcake image from Fresh Brewed Designs. I printed the cupcake liner on some more Designer Series Paper and then colored in the frosting with the Coastal Cabana Stampin' Blendabilities. My cupcake was a little boring, so I added some "sprinkles!" These were some freebies from my recent Winnie & Walter order (by the way, their customer service is fantastic!) The cheers sentiment from Winnie & Walter was die cut from some Pool Party Designer Series Paper and layered over a Starburst die with some Stampin' Dimensionals. I added some Sparkly Teal Gumdrops from Your Next Stamp, which I am totally obsessed with - I want them in every color! It's kind of a busy card, but totally party-ready, right? 

Come celebrate with us over at Cupcake Inspirations and play with this fun Color Inspiration! Be sure to come back tomorrow for more 300th Celebration fun!
