Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 310

Hi there! These weeks are speeding by so quickly! Before I knew it, it was time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge! This week we have a gorgeous color combination... and some yummy cupcakes!

These butterfly cupcakes are just gorgeous, and picked especially in honor of our sponsor this week - Butterfly Reflections Ink. Have you had a chance to shop there yet? Perhaps you'll be the lucky winner of the $20 gift certificate! 

The DEEtails:

I started by stamping the Dictionary background stamp in VersaMark ink and embossing it in Smoky Slate. I probably could have distressed the edges, but I like clean, sharp images, so that didn't cross my mind until after the fact... I did, however, splatter some Glimmer Mist on the paper (and probably could have splattered more). This is Key Lime and it is just gorgeous! Before I adhered my dictionary page, I adhered a bit of Washi tape toward the bottom of my card. Then I layered some pretty flowers and leaves from my go-to flower set, Secret Garden, and added the die cut sentiment. Hope you like it!
