Cupcake Inspiration Challenge 60

Hello, hello!  I'm pretty late with my Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, but I hope this one is worth the delay, lol!  I love our inspiration picture this week - all those bright fun colors (you know me and my pumpkin orange!) and those flowers - GASP!!!  I've gone the clean & simple route today with this amazing sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping - I just couldn't resist the giant scallops and flower!  I haven't been able to put down this Fly a Kite paper from October Afternoon and so you get to see it 2 days in a row - just think of it as a little eye candy treat.  Hee!

Don't forget to stop on by the store - everything is 45% off while supplies last, so now is your chance to stock up on everything crafty!

Join in on the fun and link up your fabulous creation with Mr. Linky over at Rachel's blog and then be sure to stop by and see the rest of the Sweeties for more fantastic eye candy ~ Kelli ~ Kristen ~ Piali ~ Teresa ~

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you back soon!
