It's All About the Paper

This is my first card for Cupcake Craftroom. I wanted it to basically be all about the paper, afterall Cupcake Craftroom is all about digi papers. This set of delicious papers is called Soft Whisper and there are some lovely pinks, blues, greens, and coffees. The challenge for August is "Soft and Sweet"! We would love to see anything with a sweet theme, sweet sentiment, sweet image, or 'sweet' theme and to match with softly coloured papers, soft ribbons, soft flowers.

I decided to make my card the sweet side of flowers. I used some of the solids and prints and cut the flowers from my Cricut machine and the new Art Philosophy cartridge. They were so easy to cut and roll. I added the beautiful butterfly from SU I tried to match one of the dark colors coming out of the gorgeous base pink paper. I think this came out very sweet!!

Soft-and-Sweet


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll take the time to see what the rest of the amazing DT came up with and check out Cupcake Creations.

Have an awesome day!
Theresa

How sweet, Theresa. I love all your rolled flowers. I can't believe those are on a cartridge. I have horribly neglected my Expression. :)
