I love cupcakes. I love to eat them but mostly I love to look at them. This cupcake is no exception. It comes from the Basic Grey nook and pantry line, which is my all time favorite Basic Grey line. Probably because its chock full of cute little cupcakes, with those yummy doily-ish prints. Love love love.
I used the colors from CR84FN this week to make this card.. They have the yummiest color combos and even yummier inspiration picture. (I used a cupcake in last weeks CR84FN card too! Maybe its because last week's color combo had brown in it too...and to me brown=chocolate.)
I went to Archivers last weekend, hoping to do some crafty shopping. I hadn't bought ANY craft thing in TWO months. TWO MONTHS. I can hardly believe it myself. Anyway, I went to Archivers to break my two month fast. After looking around for a little while, nothing was speaking to me. Nothing tugged at my heart, nothing softly called my name...(I know that you know what I mean) I was so disappointed.
Was I being frugal? Was there really nothing that I wanted to buy? But alas I saw a shelf adorned with little goodies from The Girls Paperie. Ahh yes! So I went home with these adorable die cut pieces of birds, flowers, keys, and clock in pretty shades of pink and aqua....
The point of this story? To give you a little background on that pink and brown frame sitting behind the cupcake. And to let you know how that flourished black and white frame with tiny polka dots came into my life.
The layout was inspired by this sketch from Card Patterns.
