Inspiration challenge today and Cupcake color challenge


This past Monday's Cupcake Craft Challenge 31 was to use brown/blue, brown/pink or brown/green. I had in mind that I would choose blue and today before I finally got to making it, I saw the Inspiration Challenge on SCS to select something from "Little Daisy Design Shop" on Etsy. I chose a cute little sundress called 'Peonies are Pretty' done in blue, soft brown, and cream. The card design layout resembles Korin's sketch for PCP today, though it's a little different from hers. I chose to offset my main image before I saw her sketch. In hindsight, cutting the dsp at this angle would have been easier if I had used a square card. I cut out the sunflower and mounted it with dimensionals to make it stand out. I also covered the inside with dsp to hide the ribbon and added a few of the flower circles from the dsp along the left side to make a border leaving plenty of room for writing. My cs and dsp is SU as is the Rub-on sentiment. The stamp is Hero Arts Sunflower Blossom.
