You're such a Pansy

Did that get your attention?  hahaha  I couldn't resist since this card has pansies all over it.  This is my second card for the Clear It Out challenge blog.  We are in the midst of our current challenge where we want to see what inspires you in your creation.  This can be anything or anyone who inspires you.  Just tell us what or who it is.  The "stash" item we would like to see is "something glittery".  Easy Peasy....right. 

My card features the adorable 'Ava Flower Patch'.  You can find her here at Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  Ava is one of my very favorite Bugaboo characters.  Must be her long hair.  I've had long hair as 'long' as I can remember.  (pun intended......LOL)

Here is my inspiration picture.  I know you were probably expecting a picture of pansies but I just couldn't resist these scrumptious cupcakes.

The randomly selected winner of our challenge will receive.............

Bugaboo has so many cute digis to choose from.  So hurry on over to Clear It Out and show us your inspiration.  You have one more week to enter.

While designing my card I found this cute sketch from The Sweetest Thing which gave me a chance to use my Whimsy pennant dies.  This was my first time using one of their Sweet Sunday Sketches & I must say I'll be using their sketches again & again.  You can go here to see all of their sketches in one place.
