Believe in Yourself Butterflies...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #354~Blush, Meringue, Sky, 4 Craft Chicks #292~Anything Goes, Creatalicious Challenge #88~Things with Wings

Hello,

I'm super excited to be joining with my teammates for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #354


for three reasons: the pretty colours, the fabulous inspiration photo and, most important, because this week we're sponsored by My Creative Time!  If it weren't for my discovery of Emma, her amazing products and her fantastic videos, I wouldn't be making cards today. She was my 'gateway' into this sport, my first *Muse*, and my first connection with this dynamic community.  I have plenty of MCT in my collection and I love it alllll!  Her blog is a vibrant, innovative source of inspiration. Please: if you have a chance, head  over to her place.  She is a GEM!


My card features three sets of some of favourite MCT products:
Pretty Butterflies & Dragonflies Dies
Script Type Backgrounds Stamp
You Matter Stamps

I used two of the 'watercolour' background stamps for my background (my secret is revealed *grin*), two of the butterfly dies - one to create the stitched outline and a second for the little insets, and a sentiment from You Matter.  The Spring palette makes me smile, and I hope it evokes a similar response for you!


Inspired to play along? I hope so, because guess what: Emma is generously giving THREE stamp sets to this week's winner!  I'd love if these would head your way!!

Bring out your blush, meringue and sky inks, papers, markers....whatever you have...and join us!


See you in the gallery!!
