Joy To You Always...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #384, Serendipity Stamps Sponsor

Hello,

Today, I'm joining Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #384 as a member of the DT for this week's challenge:  Serendipity Stamps.  Mary is generously offering a $20 Gift Certificate to the winner, so be sure you play along!

The Cupcake sweeties are tantalizing us with this lovely, intricately detailed treat, focusing on turquoise, gold and midnight.  Eat this? Eventually, but some careful gazing and admiring of the artistry that went into this design would certainly take priority. And if the outside looks this grand, I can only imagine what awaits within...


For my card, I went with 'simple, yet detailed,' using the Angel die cut from gold shimmer cardstock (crazy challenging to photograph) and Joy To You Always sentiment. The stars are a Memory Box stencil...

Please be sure to check out what the Cupcake gals, along with guest designers from Serendipity, have created.  WOW guaranteed!

Your turn!  How will turquoise, midnight and gold inspire YOU?
Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me joy!
