Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Sprinkles of Life


Welcome to this week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.

My son is going to a birthday party this week and this card is for his little friend. :)

The DSP is from English Garden....it’s a fun stripey Melon Mambo print. The stamp set is Sprinkles of Life and I found a cute little stamped flower in Tempting Turquoise from the Petite Petals stamp set and I thought it would look adorable on the top of the cupcake.

Here is our sketch for this week:

I took my colour inspiration this week from The Paper Players:

  8. This is so fun Alison and a great way to combine both challenges - who could resist that yummy-looking treat?! The stripy paper background reminds me of a bakery shop awning too!

  9. Ug! Joanne and I are thinking the same things this week! The background does look like a bakery awning! Love the flower on the cupcake too! :)
