Happy Friday to you all!  This was a short work week that just seemed to go on and on, lol.  I have a fun card to share with you today and quite different from my normal style.
I love challenges that offer inspriation, be it from a photo, a color challenge, or a sketch challenge.  Especially a sketch challenge!!  I've gotten to where I don't know if I could come up with a layout on my own.
My card today was inspired by a sketch of sorts.  The challenge on Moxie Fab World was to design your card around this scrapbook layout:










I love the multi tiers in this and that is the inspiration I took for my card.  I also threw in a few circles.  For my colors I went with a photo inspiration.










Isn't this a fun image!! This photo was provided for inspiration for this weeks challenge on 365 Cards.

I wanted a bright, cheery card to go along with all that great candy!  My wonderful floral cupcake is a digital from Michelle Perkett Studio.  As soon as I saw this image I thought of my dp from Basic Grey- it's a perfect pairing with the cupcake.

Thanks for checking out my little corner of the world! Hope you have a great weekend!
