Cupcake Inspirations - You Are Wonderful!

Looking for a fun challenge to play this week   Cupcake Inspirations has this yummy confection that goes live today!  It's a color challenge - Maroon, Coral, and Lemon!  And some happy news?  Birch Press Design is the sponsor this week!  One lucky winner will receive a $20 gift certificate to the store!
I'm playing along with the newest set of stackable cover plates called Flutter Plates!
I started by inking up a panel of white card stock with distress inks in Aged Mahogany, Abandoned Coral and Mustard Seed.  I tried to strategically put the pure colors beneath the area that each butterfly would be.  I kept one of the die cuts handy so I could place it over my inking while I was blending.  If you don't feel comfortable doing this you can outline the shape on the card stock panel by tracing the inside of the die with a pencil. 
This close up shows you all three layers of the Flutter Plates.  I cut the largest and smallest in white, and the middle one from gold foil. 
 I added a sentiment from the Birch Press Design Close To The Heart clear cling stamp set.
The finishing touch is a few gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to coordinate with the gold foil paper.

Need a little more inspiration?  The Cupcake Inspirations design team has samples to share.  You can see them and get all the challenge details here at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge
