CCMC 109

Good morning everyone! I hope that your week is going by just wonderfully! It has been super hot around here so we spend most of our days indoors. But today is Thursday which means that Friday is right around the corner!! But it also means that today is another challenge at Create with Connie and Mary! Today's challenge was to be inspired by this incredible cake. YUM! When I first saw it I was inspired to eat - LOL!! I love sweets and I love cake! Good thing my hubby's birthday is coming up! Anyway, back to the inspring part. I find these challenges hard. But being a design team member meant I had to break out of the box and find a way to be inspired. So, I let myself look at the picture and then let it set in my mind. What do I remember about the photo? What impressed me the most? Well, it was all those cute little flowers and a lot of vanilla. So that is what I went with when I designed my card. Check it out!

I kept it really simple! There was no way I was going to make that many flowers! But I loved the idea of them. There are so many different ways to be inspired by this gorgeous cake. Give it a try! It's easier than you think! Be sure to check out the other design team member entries and then enter your own card. I would love to check it out as well! Remember that Connie and Mary pick their top three to be showcased. Will that be you? You have to enter your card at Create with Connie and Mary first!! Thanks for stopping by!
