Happy Cupcake

I just loved the colors for this week's colourQ challenge: Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise and Very Vanilla. They made me think of summer! I just had to play along. I also really liked the SCS sketch challenge posted today so this card is for both challenges.

For my center panel I used the cake stand from Happy Everything and the Create a Cupcake stamp set and matching punch. The flower accent was made with one of the bitty punches and the retired 1/4" circle punch. I thought a rhinestone would look cute in the flower center and then I decided to bling it up more by putting rhinestones on the scallops of the cake stand. The curly label sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, and for the background I used turquoise, peach and daffodil DPs with tangerine card stock layers and a bit of daffodil taffeta ribbon.

Mmm, now I want it to be a nice summer day - with a cupcake! Thanks for visiting today!
