Happy Fathers Day: Cupcake inspiration challenge

HAPPY FATHERS DAY........ I hope all your Dad's , hubby's, and men in your life have a great day.

My post has to be quick today, as my family and I will be making the rounds today to our dads.

Well, it's Sunday and Sundays = Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. I have to admit, when I first saw the cupcakes for this weeks challenge, I thought, Yikes, those are some pretty "dark" colors for me. I am definitely a Bright kind of girl. When I sat down, I knew I wanted to do a fathers Day card, I knew I wanted to use this stamp by The Greeting Farm and I knew I was following this weeks Sketch Saturday Sketch. For me, the hard part is always picking out my DP. I am VERY picky with my paper, as I feel it is the major impact on my card. Well, after searching for the right paper, I came up with this DP, which is actually X-mas paper, but I bet you can't tell...hehehehe
We would love to have you play along this week! Make sure to add a direct link to your NEW creation on Mr Linky below by Saturday, June 26th at 9 pm MT. This is an Inspiration challenge, but please make sure your creation is truly inspired by this cupcake and this challenge is linked in your post. If you upload to a public gallery like SCS or PCP make sure to use keyword CIC64 so we can easily find you. Remember, no cupcake stamps are required! Rachel will post the Top 5 next Sunday. Have a great day and thank you for stopping by. Happy Creating!
