August Cupcake Craftroom - Fresh and Summery

Hi!

Welcome to August Cupcake Craftroom monthly challenge! This month's challenge is lilac and lime. I have used some new papers from Cupcake Cards & Crafts called Lilac and Lime Spring. 
I started with a Lemonade card base. I layered with a white embossed panel adding a fun decorative panel strip called buds to the bottom. The Midi polka-dot paper was handcut into a banner and added to the left portion of the card front. Stitched Stripes was used as a focal base for my fun layered ice cream cone which was paper pieced using curly brackets and Lilac polka-dots

Finishing touches include a sentiment stamped on Lemonade paper and some fun twine which I wrapped in a wonkly manner around my panel and tied in a bow.   

Beautifully coordinated papers makes designing a cinch. 

I hope you will play along with us at The Cupcake Craftroom and be sure to check out this fun new line called Lilac and Lime

We look forward to seeing what you create!
Thanks for visiting me today!
