{Cupcake Inspirations} is "LACING" Up Another Challenge!

Hello friends!
Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
I have been celebrating with my son for his birthday. So fun to visit with him.

So today starts another {Cupcake Inspirations} challenge!  And here is a stunning photo with the theme to help inspire you with that:
Such elegant looking cupcakes, right?!  Almost too pretty to eat!! :)

We have a fabulous sponsor for our challenge this week as well!
(Click on the badge above to be taken to their shop)

They are offering up a wonderful prize this week to a lucky winner by giving away a $25.00 gift card to their store!!  Wow!  How awesome!  So be sure to play along for your chance to win!!

They were very generous in giving the design team some beautiful products to play with for this challenge too!  Here's what I've come up....
The beautiful lace that I've used on my creation from the sponsor is some 1" White Lace Ribbon which you can find in their store.  I've also used some 1/4" Crochet Trim Ribbon that I've layered over top of that and wrapped around the die cut square.

So since this challenge was all about LACE, I thought I'd pull out a stamp I haven't used yet.  I've stamped MFT Lace Background stamp with VersaMark ink and embossed it with white EP over some really gorgeous shimmery card stock.  I've also done this to the stitched frame that I've cut out with MFT Stitched Square Frames die.  I've got the the frame popped up over the card note base with foam tape.  For the sentiment, I've taken the MFT Happy Everything stamp set and embossed it with silver EP and added a silver dazzles sticker strip below the sentiment to make a nice border.  I've also used the MFT Happy Trio Die and covered it with the same silver EP to match the sentiment and so that it stood out a bit better over the white lace.

So I wanted to add some flowers to match the photo as well, so I've placed some pearls in the centers of the flowers.  I thought this would make for a really elegant wedding gift note.  (Which I have one coming up soon, so this will be perfect for it! )

I sure hope that you will join us for this challenge because I would LOVE to see all of those gorgeous LACE creations entered for this challenge!! :)  So get your lace and play along!
Be sure to check out the {Cupcake Inspirations} blog for more inspiration!

Thanks so much stopping in today!  Hope you were inspired to create something "LACEY"!!

I'm sorry for my late visit, I've been away on holiday but will now catch up. This is a stunning creation, so much lace, love the lace stamp you've used too. It's such a beautiful and delicate design.

This is such an elegant card - recipient will be very happy and it will be a treasure for sure. I browsed around MFT - and I have never visited them before and guess what I found!! Mice - the harvest mice were adorable and I wanted them so bad along with the die cuts - but alas not meant to be as it is sold out. But I will revisit for sure - love their products so thanks for introducing me to another way to spend my money or ask for an extra gift on my B day!!! LOL big hugs
