Wowsers! Look at all these cupcakes. Those are the inspiration for this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge CIC219. This week we have one of our regular sponsors back - Fresh Brewed Designs. My favorite images are the coffee cups. So many of my friends and relatives are avid coffee drinkers so the coffee images are perfect for the cards I make for them. But this week Fresh Brewed has shared some beach/marine life images with us. You should check out what the rest of the design team has created and then visit the Fresh Brewed store. You can never have too many digis.
I had a lot of fun making this card.
I do love a seascape and the summer colors. For the background I used "Under the Sea" and then I made a couple "Flirty Fish" in different sizes which I cut out and popped up on dimensionals. If I made a large card or project I could have added some starfish, turtles and crabs, all of those images are available at the Fresh Brewed store.
At the end of this post I am going to share with you a drawing I made many years ago. If you read down to the end of the post you'll see that I've had this love for many years. Since the drawing is signed with my maiden name I know that it's from the early 80's. Seems like some loves are lifelong loves.
