Happy Bird-Day...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #366~Pool, Petal, Clover, Seize the Birthday~Birds, Bees and Butterflies, Cards in Envy~Stripes Challenge

Hello,

Hope you're having a marvelous weekend!  I'm here at my mom-in-law's, while my husband has gone on to Delta, where he'll be officiating a bike race tomorrow before heading back. She's fun: lots of chatting, laughing and coffeeing!

Ready for another challenge? Then my DT and I are here to deliver, with Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #366~Pool, Petal and Clover.  Aren't these flamingo cupcakes amazing?


This week, we're sponsored by Inspired by Stamping, who are generously offering the challenge winner a $25 gift certificate to their store.  So generous; thank you!



The colours and the flamingo inspired my card


(Hmmm...my tide pool right-hand stripe looks green, even though it's not)

Need more inspiration?  My awesome team-mates have precisely that...you'll be soooo impressed:


Now, your turn!  Looking forward to seeing your 
Pool, Petal and Clover designs in the gallery!
