Hope Stamps Eternal Cupcake Challenge #1

Starting this week, Rachel from Hope Stamps Eternal is going to be posting a weekly cupcake inspiration challenge on her blog. This is the first week and aren't these cupcakes awesome!
When I first started my card I tried a ladybug theme with a pink flower just like the cupcakes but I just couldn't get it to work out. I scrapped that idea and decided to go with a ladybug/flower them (just leave out the pink). I'm really happy with how this turned out except for the fact that my center square is glued on a bit crooked. I tried hiding the error with some extra leaves but in the end you can still tell, but oh well. I live and breath Tombow Mono Multi but in cases like this I wish it was quite so permanent. I actually tried to get that square off but after 2 long hours of putzing with this card I decided that crooked was A-OK with me. This week one lucky cupcake challenge participant will win a $10 gc to Rachel's Hope Stamps Eternal store so pull out those stamps and get inspired!!!

Hope you all had a great day! I have another DRS Designs Easter card to share with you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!

Very cute card Heather, I didn't notice is was crooked until you pointed it out!! :o) Is that ladybug a brad or what? Cute!! I was home sick today, tried to make a card, but I couldn't stay out of bed long enough to color an image...I hate being sick. Plus I miss my students...

LOVE the card Heather! The red flower is fabulous with the lady bug! The polkadots look great too! Just blame the crookedness on the polka-dotted paper.....not the gluer - it throws the eyes off!! : )

PS.....I'd like to just lick those cupcakes!

just lovely! the lady bug reminds me of the little chocolates we used to get in Germany as good luck.
I never seem to get my layers straight, even if I measure them with a ruler, when I adhesive them, they move, and that's that...lol.....I think I have crooked eyesite!! lol
Barely can even tell on yours Heather!
