FOSTV62 - Inspiration Challenge

Today's inspiration challenge at Friends of Speedy TV is a great one.  The photo is lovely and I thought I knew what I was going to do but my ideas and my creating skills did not match.

I wanted beautifully scrolled ribbons connecting my cake and my numbers but the scrolled ribbons came unscrolled within minutes so I had to rethink.

This is my card.
I used Big Cupcake Mini (the free set if you buy this month's release), the butterflies from Scenic Selections and a sentiment from Fabulous Dogs.  I used Spellbinders dies for cutting and embossing and Copics for colouring.  The butterflies have Stickles on their wings.

If you take up this week's challenge you could win the stamp set In My Den.
Check out the challenge over at Friends of Speedy TV. Have a great week.



  1. Love how you did the ribbon. Great design & layout. The perfect birthday card!

  2. I think it turned out very pretty! I like the ruffled ribbon and how it mirrors the draperies.

  3. Beautiful colors! Love the butterflies! Your card has the light flowing feel of the inspiration photo!

  4. So Beautiful Janine, I love your ruffled ribbon and the way they frame the cupcake!

  5. I love your take on the challenge. This is so cute.

  6. This is just GORGEOUS, Janine. I love those colors, and it's just really lovely. I am also Guest Designing this month for Mark's Finest Papers which is always fun!
