A little tropical flair is in the air for inspiration this month. Bright pinks, aquas, golden tones and a touch of white promise easy breezy days ahead. There's no script for this inspiration... go floral, keep it modern, follow our color pattern or forge your own path, just show us your tropical chic inspired creations.
For my card today, I used the Small Packages stamp set from Verve Stamps and added a tropical flare to it with the different colors and made the cupcake the focal point with the sentiment "Happy Birthday"! I am always in need of birthday cards and I love these bright colors - makes me feel so happy to see colors that are so vibrant! I thought the background of the card was kind of the same as the fabric of that chair in the inspiration pic (how fun is that chair?!!) and added some twine at an angle for both fun and for the color of it all :)
Here is a closer peek at the cucpake - I love this cupcake - it is so much fun to color and also to "ice" - I added stickles to the whole cupcake and some chunky glitter to the non-shadow part for more texture :) - Love how this turned out!
