Cupcake Inspiration

Hi everyone! Sorry I have not posted this week, but I figured I would leave the candy up top for a bit. Thanks to all of you who have become followers and left comments. I love hearing about all the places you have traveled. Some gave me the giggles!

Today I made this card to follow the inspiration picture. It is for Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #71. Don't they look yummy? The pic is all Fall, Halloween, and yummy gooey all rolled into one. Here is the card I came up with.
I started with a base of Chocolate Kiss Pure Luxury card stock, from Gina K. Designs. My designer paper is from Flavia. I was lucky enough to score a win recently over at StampTV, so for my prize, I chose Melanie Muenchinger's latest set called Fun Year Round. That is how I achieved the circle background, circle fill ins and words. I added a branch from Unity and an owl from Hampton Art. Some of the circles have flourishes stamped from Stampabilities. There are accents made with white gel pen, gems, threaded buttons, and a vintage, brown lace bow made from seam binding. My images were colored with Copics and my owl was popped for dimension.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to be back with another card real soon!

Congrats on your win, and what a great card you created with the prize! I love all the circles and buttons and especially that cute little owl holding the present! Who knew seam binding made such a cute bow anyway??? Now you've inspired me to dig through my sewing box a little harder!
