Hi Crafty Friends! There's a new challenge going on over at "There's Magic in the Air" this week. We are to get our inspiration from the picture over to the left for our project. I chose to go with the "colors" on this one.

Nina is generously offering a freebie this week which I used here. It's called "Flower Cupcake with Butterfly". Go here to get in the challenge and to pick up your freebie to use. Or you can browse around Nina's store "Paper Cupcakes" here if you wish to select another image. She has lots of cute ones to choose from.The DP used here is from a DCWV summer stack that I've had for a couple years. The dark green cs is from SU called "Handsome Hunter". Corner scroll is cut with a Sizzix die. The sentiment was done on Photoshop. The yellow paper and gems are from my stash and the bling is done with Stickles.
I printed the cupcake twice on white paper, and "just" the icing four times on a light yellow DP. The image was colored with Copics and glitter gel pens and then layered up with dimensionals. I doodled a little on the butterfly with black and orange. Then I sponged around the edges of the oval with orange ink and added stickles to the icing. I adheared the same papers to the inside of the card which you can see in the picture below.
I hope you stop by and check out this challenge and give it a go. Have fun with it! Have a great day!
