Sameness can be so different. (CIC255)

It's another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!!! This week we are sponsored by 

They are generously offering THREE digi stamps to our randomly drawn winner! Wow.

Thank you for sponsoring our challenge, Dilly Beans! 

Our challenge this week is MONOCHROMATIC.
(It is NOT necessary to use purples; ANY monochromatic color combo will work.)

Purple Ombre Mini Cakes from Glorious Treats

This is actually one of my favorite cards to make. They're not always as easy as they look but this one came together easily for me. I knew I wanted to use 'not pink'. :) Purple stuck out to me as a soft and sweet Easter color without being traditional Easter. You know what I mean? 

I am using DillyBean's Aidynn's Bunny Framed digital stamp. This is such a sweet image and so easy to color up. I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils and matted her on Sahara Sand cardstock. My card base is Elegant Eggplant and I kept it 4 1/4 inch square.

On the inside, I used more Sahara Sand to frame my note space. My Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp is stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink. 

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