Guest Designer for Cupcake Inspirations #358

Hi Everyone,

I have a surprise for you today - I am your Cupcake Inspirations Surprise Sweetie!!!
I am sure you know this delightful challenge - they have the sweetest inspiration photos! And its no different for this challenge.

The sponsor for the challenge is Create a Smile - a German stamp company, which has fabulous sets. I actually bought a few a while ago and then never used them, tsk, tsk, tsk... But now I had a real reason to pull them out! The background I made with Brushos, the bird and balloons are colored with Copics. Some Washi tape and the heat embossed sentiment. I mounted the bird and balloons with foam tape. Added an enamel dot.

Here is the sweet Cupcake Inspiration photo:

On this photo you see that one of the Washi tapes has silver stripes, but it looks grey from head on. But the silver adds a nice touch.

Linking up with:
Seize the Birthday - anything birthday
Create a Smile customer April link-up
Time Out - celebration with optional die or fuzzy cutting 
(did the latter for my birthday card, which I think should qualify for celebration )

Grab Our Badge!

Happy Stamping!

Great minds...I also bought this Create A Smile stamp...it's still sitting on my desk screaming to be use. Adore this cockatoo...looks terrific against that Brusho background. And love the orange and purple color combo.
