DSCN0344Thought it would be fun to start off my week by participating in the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge. This week’s theme is Around The Town.

For this particular challenge, I wanted to feature a sophisticated design. My entry for this challenge is the Flapper Girl Birthday Greeting Card. She is hand stamped in black ink onto bright white smooth cardstock and watercolored using ruby red, cameo coral and so saffron inks. The greeting card base and frame are made with licorice twist smooth cardstock that has been enhanced with dry embossed polka dots. The card is embellished with a handmade die cut city skyline in navy pearl smooth cardstock and gemstone silver textured cardstock. It is attached to the greeting card with foam dimensionals.

The cardstock used is from Core’dinations and Bazzill Basics. Inks are from Stampin’ Up. The skyline image is created with Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.

To join in the challenge, visit the Cupcake Inspirations Blog and get inspired!
