Cupcake Inspirations Challenge 365

Hooray! Hooray! I finally found time to play my favorite challenge... I'm lucky these girls keep me around! Today's theme is flowers - so easy to play... except for the fact that my Cuttlebug finally broke on me and the die cut that I was planning to use for the challenge wasn't going to work for me, so I had to dig out some goodies that my dearie Naki had die cut for me awhile back and work with what I had! Talk about a challenge!

If you haven't played Cupcakes before, this week is definitely the week to do so. Winnie & Walter is our sponsor and they are generously giving away a gift card to one lucky winner! Plus, this calorie free challenge is always beautiful and inspiring.

Embellishments: Winnie's Sparkly Shaker Selection (Winnie & Walter)

  1. Your card is beautiful Nina! I love that big, bold sentiment die and the flowers finish it off nicely!!

  2. For a girl who had some die cutting drama on her hands, you sure had a beautiful project in in end. Love the giant hi sentiment. Makes the card very special.

  3. This is so cute! I really like the ombre paper!

  4. Yayyy...welcome back, Nina! And what a marvelous come-back you've made, with your big, bold Hi, jazzed up with oh-so-pretty flowers! My cuttlebug cratered on me a while back; fortunately, however, I had a Big Shot on standby (it sat in a box for nearly two years...I was *not* going to open it until my cuttlebug had completely tanked. I loved my cuttlebug and cranked it until one of the springs/screws came out. The point of no return *grin*).
