May Cupcake Craftroom Summer Theme Challenge

Hey there!

Welcome to May's Cupcake Craftroom Monthly Challenge!  With Summer approaching and Mandy's new paper line at Cupcake Cards we thought we would jump start your summer mojo with a little inspiration photo and Summer Theme!

Here is the card I created using papers all from the new line called Last Summer. This line is so fun and colorful!
Here is the yummy inspiration photo.
Please use a summer theme and colors in the photograph.
I started this card by piecing together my fun picnic patterned paper to my solid Whisper White pre-cut piece. I die cut a row of stars from the solid yellows in the collection and adding it where the two papers meet for a fun decorative detail. I stamped the popsicle from Wilson Designs Sweet Celebrations using the pink quatrefoil paper adding to the left card face using foam mounting squares for dimension. 
To coordinate with these darling papers, a Lemonade Glass from Wilson Designs Strawberry Lemonade was stamped in the upper right of the card front and colored with copics to match the paper. A sentiment from the same set was stamped over the glass in a bright fun summery pink. For a finishing touch, a little bright pink bling was added to the straw as well as by the sentiment along with a button and polka dotted ribbon tab.

I hope you will join in the fun with us this month at The Cupcake Craftoom and check out the wonderful paper collection perfect for this challenge. You get 31 papers total ready to print and to use as often as you like. 8 wonderful summery colors perfect for summer birthday parties and celebrations! 

We are looking forward to seeing what you create with this wonderful photo to jump start your summer projects!

Thanks for visiting me today!
