This month's challenge is entitled Sweet September:
Sugar-high! Get sugary sweet with pastels, cupcakes or candy. Create a calorie free confection to delight the senses! Feel free to use the graphic as inspiration or not.
If you have come here from Stacey's blog, you are right on track. If you happened along the Hop, you can check out the Hop List below to get caught up.
For my card I used the newly released Small Packages and co-ordinating Cupcake Frame die set along with this week's Viva La Verve sketch. I coloured the cupcake with Twinkling H2Os and added some stickles for a bit of sparkle. A little flag banner in the cupcake and some fun, purple twine I found in my stash finished things off.
I realized too late in the process (unlike Diva Moe who caught herself) that I used a stamp from the recent release instead of a previously released stamp set which is the purpose of an Inspiration Hop. A very stressful and exhausting week hijacked my brain cells... Off to sit in my time out chair ;)
