Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #23

Welcome to Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #23 from Hope Stamps Eternal!

Isn't this week's photo so beautiful?? I just love how elegant it is! The card I made to go along with it is pretty much not something I ever make - I have no reason to send lovey dovey cards like this, so it may sit in my stash for a while! But I do like how it turned out, so let's go over the details.

I used Nestabilities to cut out the scalloped card base and the white circle. The flowers are the Sweet Blossoms from Zva Creative, which I colored with a red Copic to match the red rose on the cupcake. The flowers were adhered with Judikins Diamond Glaze. The white circle was embossed with the Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm set called Sentiments. I used some hardware from a SU hodge podge set to frame the sentiment. To finish the card off, I lined all of the scallops with Stardust Stickles for lots of lovely sparkle.

If you want to play along, add a direct link to your creation to the Mr. Linky widget on Rachel's post.
The top 5 entries linked by next Saturday night will be featured in the collage next Sunday.

Now before you go off to create, be sure to check out the rest of the HSE Sweeties for more fantastic inspiration!
