This week’s Inspiration Challenge was suggested by Melody (lacyquilter). She thought we would all find inspiration from the elegant edible designs of Maggie Austin Cake. Exclusively custom and exquisitely tailored, Maggie Austin designs display symmetry, elegance, and sophistication with the subtle yet unmistakable mark of haute couture.
For those of you who say you get overwhelmed with having too many choices, I’ve uploaded five of my favorites … so just stick with one (or all) of those for your inspiration. The rest of you, remember to let us know which item from Maggie Austin Cake that inspired you.
Use the keyword: IC293 (no spaces or extra characters) when you upload your card, and make sure you put commas between your key words.
How to Play ~ View the attached images. You may be inspired to recreate the pieces ~ but that isn't necessary ... get your inspiration from the colors, layout, style or 'theme'. Just enjoy wherever your inspired creative journey takes you. Remember, if you are inspired by the creation of another artist, please do not use print-outs of the art in your creation or directly copy their work. Make the inspiration piece your own. Don't worry ~ no card is 'wrong' and there is no time limit for uploading your card for the challenge. There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild ~ be *inspired* and go get stamping!
Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Also, remember to link to your SCS gallery on this thread. Thank you for joining me on this inspiration journey.
Thanks for the lovely inspiration site, Steff and Melody. That gal Maggie has real talent for sure. I chose the Carolina Cake for my inspiration to create an anniversary card. I substituted a coral hue for the Magenta - seemed to fit better for the the couple that will receive the card.

Some stunningly beautiful cakes over at Maggie Austin Cake, but I wasn't able to capture the photos individually either - I chose the "Lavendar Anemones" and "Purple and Yellow Pansies" cakes to be inspired by ... and came up with this:
