Clearly it's a Cupcake Inspiration Challenge!

Am I not the smartest Title maker in the world???!! I bet you had no idea I would be talking transparencies!

Today is Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #17 at Hope Stamps Eternal and I was totally inspired with the beautiful presentation in the inspiration photo.

Seeing that the plate was glass, my first thought was to make a transparency card and with all the other challenges going on with the Dare to Get Dirty 2009, I knew I could combine a few challenges......yes, I still feel a tad guilty about combining challenges. I am going to do it anyway, but I keep thinking I am cheating on one challenge over another......geeesh.....

I folded my clear sheet just like a card and then cut it out with the largest die in the Spellbinders scalloped circle nestabilities set, making sure to keep the top of the die up off of the fold, so that I didn't just cut two scalloped circles but maintained the card fold.

The round polka dot circle on the inside of the card, is made by using two of the Spellbinders circle nestabilities nested inside each other when you roll it through the Cuttlebug to cut your paper.

I have used
Basic Grey June Bug designer paper for my card. It is so bright and beautiful and it matches, naturally, the Basic Grey Woolies, June Bug, which I see Rachel is out of right now, but the link goes to the Basic Grey page, so I am sure there is something there that will catch your eye ;)!

It was a breeze to make the holes in the scallops with the crop-a-dile!

I stamped the sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Mega Mixed Messages onto one of the tags of the Wizard Tags Trio from Spellbinders and attached it with a small clear glue dot!

Please make some time today to take a look around at the other Sweeties blogs and see all the wonderful creations they have come up with!
