On My Mind with Summer Sketches

Surprisingly, I have never seen nor played along with the Cupcake Inspirations challenge.  What a fun and creative challenge!  Now that I've found it, this week's challenge is to use Flowers with Pearls/Sequins. Here's what it inspired me to create.

Summer Sketches

I actually did try to model it after the inspiration photo although it's somewhat hard to tell.  I am not a pink fan, so I went with peachy tones.  Originally this card was an all-white front but it needed something more.  I remembered the silver cupcake wrappers in photo - I didn't want to go with silver, but I added gray stripes which I thought were reminiscent of the wrapper.  Now that I have my card and the inspiration side-by-side, the cupcake silver is more of a blue tone and my gray is more of a tan tone so it doesn't look at all alike - but I really was inspired!!  So a big thanks to the challenge!
