Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #32

Good Sunday morning and welcome to another Cupcake Inspiration Challenge! This week we have another delicious looking cupcake to be inspired by!

Every week Rachel Hope, from Hope Stamps Eternal, uploads a fabulous cupcake and our design team is totally inspired (because we are like that !) and we whip up a card to totally inspire you!

So here is today's cupcake......

and here is how I was inspired.

I used Basic Grey June Bug designer paper and a stamp from my new Bella Blvd Camp Out stamp set- I love this little motor home. My in-laws sold motor homes for years and this sweet set brings back a ton of memories!

I am using this as a retirement card and on the inside the sentiment is "Happy Retirement" (original, I know)......

My trail of "dust" is one of those fabulous Zva Creative flourishes in Jet. So you see how it hangs off the edge of the card? Just make sure if you do this, that you put a bit of baby powder on the back of the sticky part - so that it won't be sticky! a fabulous tip I learned from the wonderful Kim Hughes right here! and then be sure to use a larger envelope so the gorgeous crystals won't fold over and be all my grandson would say....

Don't forget to drive around to the other "Sweeties" blogs and check out how they were inspired!! AND since we are saying good bye this week to the most awesomest Tammy, we have a new member of our design team and that is Teresa Kline! Welcome Teresa!!
