Color Throwdown Challenge #175

Hi everyone!  I'm back in the Color Throwdown swing of things after my trip to San Antonio last week, so I'm popping in to share a VERY quick project I made to house the VERY time consuming cupcakes I made :/  Danielle is our hostess with the mostess (CTD175), and she chose an awesome palette for this time of year.  It can be winter-y, Valentine-y, spring-y, whatever theme you're feeling at the moment.  I'm feeling kinda Valentine-y ♥ ...even though I don't even have a prospective Valentine :[  Check out her palette:

I used the new MTME Hey Cupcake template for my project.  I've been itching to whip one of these up, so this week's challenge was the perfect opportunity!  I layered my MTME Fun Flowers paper as the decorative panel, adhered my fave white sewing trim and olive ribbon, and hot glued some primas.  That was IT!  I know, I know...I didn't stamp a tag, I didn't stamp ANYTHING, but I still think it makes a statement and is adorable!  Just goes to show your projects don't have to be overly fussy to look sweet ♥
Here's a snapshot of the inside of my box:
I also couldn't wait to show you how easy it is to dress up your cupcakes!!  I made some fancier cupcake wrappers for this release (My Sweet Heart and Fine Foliage), but I didn't want anyone to lose sight of how quick and easy the Basic Cupcake Wrapper can be when paired with some fun digital paper!  It cuts in just a few seconds (whereas the more detailed the design, the longer it takes to cut), and it's simply a matter of securing it and adding the cupcakes like I did here!  I used the smaller of the two sizes.
So...what do you think?  EASY stuff, my friends!  Glad you stopped by today.  Please be sure to check out my fellow, amazing DT sisters to soak up some more inspiration :]
