Amazing...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #344~Gold, Cream, Blush

Hello,

Cupcakes, anyone?  I thought you'd say yes, so here I am, along with my wonderful teammates and our Surprise Sweetie, Pamellia, and two guest designers from our sponsor - Adrienne and Megan - to invite you sample the tasty, pretty confections we're serving at
 Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #344:


Aren't these gorgeous...and check out the mountain-sized swirls of icing...I think I want the ones that spell *LOVE*.  Yes, being a wee bit greedy!

Gold, cream and blush saw me reaching for  my elegant lacy butterfly from So Suzy Stamps, inked in Delicata Gold (the shimmer is so pretty!), an Amazing die cut from MFT, and a trio of cream coloured pearls.  Easy and, according to my husband and mom, quite pretty (although they do tend to be biased *grin*)


Our sponsor this week is Freckled Fawn, who will be providing a prize for a randomly chosen winner:


Soooo...after we've had our dessert, I hope you'll head to your crafting haven and use the Gold, Blush and Cream combination to create a delectable delight for us to feast our eyes on.  I know your designs will be wonderfully creative and wonderfully inspiring!

See you in the gallery!
