I wanted to get an extra post in today because I am running out of time on this challenge. I strongly recommended to a good blog friend that she should do this one but I haven't seen anything from her yet - HINT HINT! I know that if she did this one that I wouldn't stand a chance so I was going to pass. By some divine intervention - or my sheer lack of restraint, while I was on my weekly craft store hunt my daughter spotted this paper with sock monkeys and said "aren't you going to do the Cupcake Challenge?". Needless to say my fate was sealed.
I was immediately inspired by the colors - black and red, patterns - polka dots and stripes, and of course that cute sock monkey. I made mine into a festive - Go You! card that can be used for just about any cheerful occasion. For the sock monkey embellishment I fussy cut one of the little guys from the pattern paper and used pop dots to give some dimension. There lots of bling and shine - the satin ribbon, the gems, and even the buttons almost glow. I think you can see the influence here. If you want to play along - you better hurry - you can get all the details here: http://cupcakeinspirations.blogspot.com/2012/02/challenge-148.html
Thanks for stopping by for a look - I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
