Scrapbook Boutique April challenge

Another delicious photo inspiration for this month's challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique.


The delicate colours matched with the darker stripes of the cupcake wrappers were the inspiration for my project.  I used the little birdhouse image and sentiment from a newly-acquired stamp set by WPlus9, called Folk Art Florals, and added the branch die and birds, both by Memory Box.  Onto a Kraft card base I adhered the stamped Hardwood background by Stampin' Up!, and added a flower bloom image from the WPlus9 stamp set and a hand made rose.   I'm not sure you can see this in the photo, but after stamping the caramel coloured house, I clear embossed it, as a nod to the glistening topping on the cupcake.
