I created a card this week for the challenge that inspired me from the image that is posted above it. So I choose the Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set. I did look for some ideas to get me started on splitcoast and found a card similiar to what I ended up doing but the person had more layers and different colors then I went with. I wanted the bright green in there cause I am giving it to a friend for her birthday and she loves lime green. I did want to go with a light pink ribbon but I didn't have any so I settled with the whisper white taffeta ribbon. I know I can color it but I didn't want the mess. The colors I used were Green Galore, Blush Blossom, and Melon Mambo. I also added some glitter to the cupcakes.

This is my entry for the challenge this week. I used chocolate chip, pink pirouette, and very vanilla cardstock. The stamp I used is from the Eat Chocolate set and is stamped in chocolate chip ink. I wanted to use the embossing plates and put big poke dots on my card but I realized I needed the rubber crease pad for it and I don't have one yet. So I ended up going with the embossing folder that has smaller dots instead. I did have trouble figuring out what brad I wanted to use. I found about 3 of these in a container. I wish I had more but it was the one I thought worked the best out of everything I have at the moment. I don't think its current though cause I couldn't find it in the book. The second card I made cause I didn't like the distressing of the edges I did on the first one as much and I changed the colors around a bit as well. Sorry the pink is actually a little lighter then that but I have a crappy camera at the moment that the focus and flash are not working all the great on.
