A Life filled with Cupcakes is a Good Life!

Mojo #80 and Papertake Weekly easy 1-2-3.....

I adore Cupcakes. Yep, any kind of cake will do me just fine. But, love the simplicity of a small sampling of a cake, my sized, but it must have TONS of icing! Vanilla cake with vanilla icing is now my favorite. Onto the card......

Oh how on earth did I miss these websites in the past? I stumbled onto this site, MOJO MONDAY sketch blog a week or so ago and just had to try my hand at these sketches. Papertake Weekly was just this morning! Well, trying to condense my challenges into one card- that took some thinking (hard to do at 5:30am....) So, pulling out this combo from Kristen (she gave me lots of love the other week!) I went to work. This is my 1st card using this set of papers. I just love the colors green and orange together!

Mojo monday, was to follow the sketch design- which I did. The Papertake Weekly, the challenge was to use: circle (yep, good life stamp!), ribbons (yep, used ricrac) and stamps or images (yep- digi stamp of the cupcakes)! Followed all of the instructions!

I used a digi stamp for the first time and had some trouble with it, but did my best and just printed it off from Adobe, not being able to resize it. Used liquid applique on the icing, with Prisma Glitter- let it set overnight and heated it this morning to raise it up (3D effect!). The dew dots are pink, but look clear on this card. All in all, I am very happy with the way it ended- will definitely be back onto this site for more challenges!
