A Yummy Inspired Thank You

Today's Inspiration Challenge on Split Coast was a fun sampling of Cupcake wedding cakes - I chose the blue one here as inspiration.
I immediately thought of PapertreyInk's Out on a Limb set and used that for my branch - I used Adirondack ink for the branch and Color Box Chalk inks for the flowers and buds as they are nice and juicy inks and stamp brightly. I cut the panels with petite rectangles Nestabilities and both panels are mounted on foam dimensionals. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the background with Distressed Stripes and finished up with the ribbon and pierced corners!

Now I'm off to do some errands, water the gardens and maybe sit in the sun a minute!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink: Out on a Limb, Out on a Limb Sentiments
Paper: Creamy caramel, blue bayou, bashful blue: SU
Ink: Espresso - Adirondack, Yellow Ochre & Rouge: Color box chalk inks, onyx black versafine
Accessories: paper piercer, cuttlebug, distressed stripes folder, petite rectangle nestabilities, foam dimensionals, pink grosgrain ribbon : Offray
Techniques: dry embossing
