RCC4-Inspirational Ribbon Cupcakes

Hey everyone, and welcome to this week's Ribbon Carousel Crew Challenge!!! I am LOVING this week's challenge, so much so, I made two cards for it!! You can see the other one in my post above this one! Ready to start? Here ya go!!

I love cupcakes... but ribbon cupcakes? Why not? As soon as we saw this pic on Pinterest, it just had to be an inspiration for one of our challenges.

Those juicy intense colors scream Spring! We've added LOTS of ribbon, seam binding and twine over on the store.

This week we have a sponsor: Our very own Sparkle Smith, owner of Sparkle Creations is offering one lucky participant, to be chosen by, Cupcake Ruby!

For my card tonight, I started by using the gorgeous Wild Sprout-Elena from The Greeting Farm. I stamped her on an X-Press it Blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. She was layered with Blue Raspberry, Lemon Drop, and Rose Red card stock. I then used some Happily Lost paper from Lilybee Designs. My hearts were cut out using the MFT Hearts a Plenty Die-namics, and I used some YUMMY Divine Twine with my button. I had to use some more of that YUMMY ruffled ribbon...I just love it!
Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!!

Happy Birthday Jessica!!
