You are the Sprinkles! ~ CCMC392 & PP280

Happy Thursday stampers!  It's time for another Create with Connie and Mary Challenge!  It's color week and we've got a soft, sweet combo of Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Crumb Cake.  Rose Red is one of those neglected colors for me.  I just don't seem to use it very fact usually only when I have too!  Don't get me wrong.  It's a beautiful shade of pink.  I usually tend to gravitate towards the brighter pink of Melon Mambo or the softer shades of Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride first.  
The Paper Players had a tic-tac-toe challenge going on this week and you know I can't resist a tic-tac-toe!  I just love the concept of this challenge.  I used Die cuts, Pink, and Girly.  

So, when I looked at these colors I automatically thought of sweet and what could be sweeter than a cupcake?!?!  I stamped the cupcake top in Rose Red and shaded it in with some Blushing Bride.  The cupcake wrapper is Crumb Cake, of course.  I wanted to have a striped background and first tried my hand at making my own by sponging some crumb cake on Crumb Cake.  It just didn't work out, so I turned to my DSP stash.  The Crumb Cake stripped piece is from the Go Wild paper stack.  
I set the cupcake on some diecut Blushing Bride and Blushing Bride Glimmer circles and layered them onto a paper doily, tying in the girly aspect.  The heart and sequins are girly as well....and pink!  

I hope to see some of your creations in the Create with Connie and Mary gallery!
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
