Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

Hello! Today I am sharing a card that I made for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge!

This is our inspirations photo:
And here is my card:

I was inspired by several things:
1.  The unusual colors.  Deep Bluish Purple, Orangy Red, Peachy Pink, and Cream.
2.  The fabic theme.  I embossed my background to give it a fabric texture, and also did the pinking shears.
3.  The images.  I repeated the cupcakes and stacked them up, similar to the apples in the photo.

I decided to use one of the Paper Smooches digital images for my card.  Kim offers different FREE digital images each month and are only available for that month.  This cupcake was from July 2011, and the "For You" sentiment on the flag (from My Guy) is this months current freebie.   My printer ink was low...  and my images ending up printing a grey color...  but I decided that I liked it like that and used them anyway!!!  A happy mistake.  :)

 I prettied up the cupcakes by adding glossy accents to the cherries, and Frosted Lace Stickes to the frosting.   They are so pretty in person!  The cake pedestal was made with a scallop border die from QuicKutz, and the Word Window punch from SU.

I had so much fun making this card!  Hope you like it.  Thanks for visiting today!
