When Life Sends You Showers, Dance in the Puddles

I LOVE Cupcakes!

Especially when they're as yummy looking as these - and it doesn't hurt that they're the design inspiration over at Cupcake Inspirations this week.

The flowers, butterflies and sprinkles of silver shot inspired me to make this blue card featuring Tilda with Flowing Hair. Butterflies just seem so right for springtime, early summer cards. Almost as perfect as the sugar variety on the cupcakes (except you can eat those! yum). So here's my take on blue cupcakes. Hope you like it.


She's colored with Copics, DP from DCWV Citrus Stack, Prima flowers, MS butterfly and leaf punches. The bling and doily are from my stash, as is the polka dot butterfly. Her basket is overflowing with FlowerSoft petals just because I like them! It really is fun to be a kid again and get your fingers all gooey, sticky with glue. I'm sure you all remember those days. The more mess you make, the more fun it is. or maybe that's just me?
