Surprise! Cacti and Cupcakes!

Hello All!

I was pleasantly surprised to be asked to guest at the Cupcakes Inspiration blog.  I am thrilled to be a Surprise Sweetie!  This week is a color challenge, PERFECT for all things spring, as in FLOWERS!

The colors are~

Just gorgeous inspiration!

I used a stunning image from Impression Obsession, Prickly Pear, designed by my friend, Dina Kowal.  She is such a talent; you can see here work HERE.  I truly cannot do this image justice, but I could not resist it and gave it my best shot.  I used my Peerless Watercolors to color it after stamping the image in clear embossing powder.
The sentiment is from PTI.
As this card is for a special friend, I will be linking up to Virginia's Link Up Party!

I am also linking up to Simon Say's Stamp's Monday Challenge-'April Showers, May Flowers'.

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you can join the girls at Cupcake Inspirations!

  1. Fabulous vibrant colours, loving how you've done the water colouring and especially making the vase so 3D...stunning card!

  2. So pleased to have you join us as our Surprise Sweetie. I think your card is absolutely stunning. It's a wonderful image and your watercolouring is so lovely! You rocked it! Thanks for joining us, Deborah DT. x

  3. Wow, this is so gorgeous! The depth and richness of the pink are astonishing! So glad that you join the fun over Virginia’s View “Friendship” Challenge!

  4. This is an amazing card! That color palette-- and the way you nailed so many shades of pink-- is quite remarkable. The flowers are so sophisticated and I love how you made the petals look as though they are outlined in white. I like how those colors play off of the bold black and white elements and the sentiment could come in handy for so many different occasion! Excellent job on this stunning card and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous!!! Your coloring is stunning, simply beautiful!!! Thank you so very much for being our surprise sweetie this week, you did such a fabulous job with the challenge colors;-D
