Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 307

Hello there! Can you believe we're nearing the end of April already? Geez! Where has the month gone! This week we have a great theme challenge for you at Cupcake Inspirations... Spring!

This week's sponsor is Limited Runs Digital Stamps. Nikki has created the most gorgeous image for this challenge! I decided to try a different route and used 2 Blooms instead.

The DEEtails:

This card evolved in an interesting way because I honestly couldn't remember what I had in mind when I chose my image for the challenge. Haha. I decided to enlarge the digi image and cut out only one of the two blooms. I colored it in with my Stampin' Blendabilities Markers. My colors are a bit limited, which is part of the reason for this color combination. I layered some punched circles in Basic Gray and Smoky Slate. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark ink and embossed it in Smoky Slate. The background is the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack layered onto some Hello Honey Cardstock. This stuff is gorgeous! I can't wait to use more!

Paper: Basic Gray Cardstock, Hello Honey Cardstock, Neenah Solar White 80# Cardstock, Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack, Smoky Slate Cardstock
Stamps: 2 Blooms (Limited Runs Digital Stamps), Four You 
Ink: VersaMark
Embellishments: Smoky Slate Stampin' Emboss Powder
Tools: 1 3/4" Circle Punch, 2" Circle Punchheat tool, Stampin' Dimmensionals

Now stop over at The Cupcake Inspirations blog and check out what the rest of the Sweeties have created. I hope you'll play with along with us this week!
