First Design Team - {PIN}spirational Challenges

It's the big day!  Today is the first day for my official post as a {PIN}spirational Challenges Design Team member!  I couldn't be more excited!!!  And wow - I'm in some great company - several friends are already members and all the members of both teams have made me feel so welcome!  A big THANK YOU to Deanne for giving me this new opportunity!  So on to the {PIN}spiration....

This week the photo is enough to make me drool - it was hard to even think about a card because I all I do was think about either making a pan of cupcakes...or better yet - running to the bakery to buy some yummy delights! 
 
Now don't those just look delish?  I was able to use an image from one of our sponsors this week, Limited Runs.  The yummy cupcake image is so sweet!  I colored it using Bic markers.  The top just screamed out to be sparkly so I used some glitter glue by Studio G for the top of the cupcake.   As soon as I saw the {PIN}spiration image, I knew exactly what paper I wanted to use!   Last year I participated in a designer paper swap and received this cupcake paper - perfect for this theme!  The ribbon came from my stash and can you believe it was the only piece and perfect size for this card!
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to play along with us this week at {PIN}spirational Challenges
