OCC....Inspiration Challenge

Happy Saturday Peeps!!! 
It is time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge. 
This week our hostess with the mostest is Lori Rider and she has a fun inspiration challenge for us.

Her is the challenge in her own words:
Please choose at least two elements from the photo and describe how they inspired your card or project.
 Optional: since this is a baby shower dessert table, make something with a baby theme!

Isn't that photo scrumptious?
 I was inspired to use the colors in the piece, I choose, very vanilla, calypso coral, pool party and soft suede and I used some of the Everyday Enchantment  DSP. I was in need of a baby card so this was a great inspiration to get it done. 
The bunny on here is from a retired Stampin Up set called  "A New Little Someone", I stamped the bunny onto some very vanilla card stock with black stazon. I colored the bunny in with soft suede, pool party and calypso coral. The intended receiver of this card is adopting a baby boy so I wanted to make sure this card said "Boy" more than girl, so I colored the bunnies bow and feet pads with the pool party and added just a bit of coral on the inside of the ears and on his cheeks.
I also took inspiration from the photo to put my bunny inside a circle to mimic all the circular elements in the photo, the cakes, the bowls and glasses. I brought in a bit of bling with silver brads on the top corners of the card and mini silver brads on the sentiment piece. 

The sentiment is from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set and I used my word window punch and modern label to make the sentiment tag.
I added some very vanilla satin ribbon across the bottom as well.

Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog 
to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun challenge.
I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do, don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
