Cupcake Sprinkles

I follow the Hero Arts blog, but up until now I haven't participated in any of their challenges. So, what inspired me to finally join in?

This week they are featuring a different guest artist each day, and the challenge is to use the artist's work to inspire you. Well, Monday's artist was Lucy Abrams. I adore Lucy's cards. If you haven't seen her blog, go take a peek. Seriously. Her stuff rocks.

I chose this card as my inspiration. I love the look of bright colors paired with kraft, especially for a birthday card. And, although you can't see it in the pic, I used a glitter pen on my heart and cupcake sprinkles. Looks good enough to eat, doesn't it?

Stamps: Clear Cupcakes (Hero Arts)
Paper: Pixie Pink textured, Pink Passion textured, PTI white
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: Nestabilities circles & scalloped circles, Copic marker, pink glitter pen (Spica), ribbon (Ribbon fX), buttons (BasicGrey), Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Martha Stewart scalloped dot punch

Great colors and I love how you used the three buttons. The fact they are naked (no thread) works because of the scalloped holes in the border and the swiss dots, creating an easy balance. I'm going to remember that one!
