Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #98

It's time for another fun cupcake inspired challenge! Rachel has found a beautiful confection for inspiration. The sponsor of the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge this week is Flourish with a Bling. They were so kind to share this lovely lavender flourish with me to use for my project! Don't forget to check out the projects the team has to share on the Cupcake Inspirations Blog.

Here's the inspirational cupcake for this challenge:

and my project to share with you:

This is the Valentine commissioned by my son for his special someone! I hope she likes it! I love the color and the image is another beauty from Ching Chou Kuik. I had so much fun creating it. I wanted to mention that I used the Flourish with Bling but I changed it a bit. I cut it into a few pieces and moved them around to fit my project. I love products that are versatile and adhesive flourishes are just that!
