My day is packed today so I've rolled 3 challenges into one...
For FS232 this week's featured stamper, teristampsalot, whose adorable gallery I truly enjoyed perusing! I like her CAS style with its bit of whimsy and the way she extends her sentiments over the edge. I loved so many of her cards but ultimately I chose this card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=142020 to case.
I kept the layout and the sentiment placement overhanging other elements. I added a border punch to the top and bottom borders, changed the colors, exchanged the center panel for color blocking, changed the flower for a paper pieced cupcake and changed the sentiment.
This week's TLC is to do color blocking with a twist. Well, I tried but this was the best I could do, a patchwork panel using a 1" acrylic block.
And finally, today's CAS challenge and inspiration from a deliciously frosty-looking smoothie called a Pink Hurricane. I was inspired by the watermelon's pink and green and the frosty drink reminded me of a frosty cupcake, this one's frosted in dd glitter.
Thanks for all the wonderful challenges which inspire me daily to create and get me out of my comfort zone. TFL and I hope you try one of these challenges today!

I was at a meeting last month that served gourmet cupcakes and a tornado threat was imminent. Everyone was saying "Save the cupcakes" if we have to evacuate. Your card so reminded me of that night.
