Just Be You

One of my crafting goals for 2011 is to find some new card challenges...I participated in my first challenge in 2010 and found that not only do I enjoy them but they really get my creative juices flowing. My favourites by far have been the photo challenges....mainly the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger and The Play Date Cafe weekly challenge. On my quest to find a new challenge I stumbled upon Cupcake Inspirations...who doesn't love a cupcake? The great thing is no cupcake stamps are required...even though I do own a few :) just need to make a card inspired by the weekly cupcake photo!

Here is this week's inspiration...

...and here is my card! If you know of any other great photo inspiration challenges I would love you to mention them in the comment section....thanks and have a great day!

  1. How Divine! You get to look at wonderfully delicious and decadent images of cupcakes and not a morsel need pass you lips or lodge on your hips!

    Then when you are all inspired you make a wonderful card using such great colour contrasts. I love the sentiment too.

    Challenge is so important in our lives if we are to grow too isn't it Christy?

  2. WOW..girl, this is dramatically fabulous! Love how you did this in black and red, just stunning.

  3. Stunning! Thanks for playing along at Cupcake Inspirations this week!

    (Have you tried Etsy Inspired Challenge?)

  4. Gorgeous colour combination and such a sweet sentiment.

  5. Wow what a great inspiration challenge, I absolutely love the card you have been inspired to create. Red, Black and White would have to be one of my favorite colour combos. The only problem with a Cupcake Challenge would be staring at all those beautiful cupcakes would make me

  6. Gosh what a dramatic gorgeous card. Love the black with a little bit of white and red. Excellent.
