The Perk-fect Pair (CIC252)

Time for a new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations!!

Our sponsor this week is Fresh Brewed Designs

Fresh Brewed Designs is generously offering THREE images as our fabulous prize to our randomly drawn winner! Wow!

Thank you for sponsoring this challenge!

Here's is this week's inspiration cupcake.
Our color challenge is to use espresso, cream, and chartreuse.  

Here's my take...

The Prismacolor Pencils on the cupcake look much brighter than in real life. The name on the pencil was 'chartreuse' so I figured it should work. *wink* The card base is Stampin' Up Whisper White and the scalloped circle is Chocolate Chip. The green is from a Big Lots stack my mom got a hundred years ago and contains two or three sheets of fifty different colors. It matches perfectly even if it doesn't look it in the pictures. The 'hello' is from a Stampendous set called Flower Chat and stamped in SU's Green Galore.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:


  1. What a beautiful, yummy card! That's an awesome color combo and so bright. Lovely!

  3. Looks fab! It's funny how different papers etc which appear to be the same colour photograph differently isn't it!

  4. This is a stunning card, Alycia! And I can personally vouch for what you say about the coloring because it's perfect IRL!!

    A hundred years ago, huh? Gosh, I have to say that I feel a little sorry for you that your mom is so darn OLD!! That musta been hard in elementary school, although there is something to be said for getting away with murder during sleep overs coz she couldn't chase you with that cane!!

    Have a great week and thanks again for this adorable work of art! Hugs, Darnell
