♥ My Sweet Cupcake ♥ {A Ribbon of Photos}

This week I am the Guest Sweetie (GDT) over at {Cupcake Inspirations}. Unfortunately my flourishes to work with for my project didn't get here in time for the start of the challenge. (Of course, they arrived the following day!:) This is the beautiful inspiration photo for the challenge.
I decided to make a little keepsake cupcake filled with lots of love, photos, flourishes and of course those yummy colors! I first inked up a white paper doily with some silver ink. Covered a small round paper mache' box with purple and orange cardstock. Then adhered the doily to the bottom and sides of the box. I then cut a round styrofoam ball in half, inked it with my green ink pad and then covered it with some white lace also inked green. I then printed out some photos of my 2 cupcakes in Sepia and adhered them to chipboard pieces. I then "linked" them together with some orange ribbon and my hot glue gun. To finish everything off, I added some Prima flowers to the top of the styrofoam as well as the gorgeous flourishes from Flourish with a Bling, which is this week's sponsor over at {Cupcake Inspirations}. I used Jack Vine in Forest Green and Jasmine Puffy Flourish in Lilac, which I cut up to add to the cupcake. Oh, they are so pretty! I then added an orange bow and a MF rub-on sentiment.
Because it is a little box, you can give a little something inside of it too. It's like a gift within a gift! I will probably give it to my Mom for Mother's Day with a little "something" inside the box. And I will probably "glam up" the photos too with some embellies! ;)

Have a wonderful day!!

Hugs...
