Cupcake Inspirations 357!

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Hello, hello!  Today I have the distinct pleasure of being the Surprise Sweetie at Cupcake Inspirations!  I love to play along over there whenever I can and this week they were gracious enough to invite me along for the ride!  This week the theme is ladybugs and the sponsor is Doodle Pantry so I hopped on over to the shop and bought the sweetest digis that I used on my card today.

I think this may be the first (or close to it) time that I printed my own patterned paper and I can't believe how great it looks.  I've got a pretty decent color laser printer and I used heavyweight (32 lb) copy paper and it looks really good.  That's it peeking out from under the little layer with the ladybug.  The sketch from Fab Friday gave me the layout and the perfect opportunity to show off that pretty paper.

That's it for me today!  Special thanks to everyone at Cupcake Inspirations choosing me as your Surprise Sweetie today.  And thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Lady Bug Hugs (Doodle Pantry)
Paper:  Soft Stone (Papertrey Ink); Basic Black, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight (SU); X-Press It Blending Card; Lady Bug Hugs (Doodle Pantry)
Ink:  Black Licorice (My Favorite Things); Copics
Accessories:  Petite Scallop Circle die, Standard Circles die (Spellbinders); Banner Trio die (WPlus 9)
