"Embrace the Sweetness of Life!"

HOLA! from my little sunny spot here in Florida. I'm so thrilled and humbled to be part of this fabulous event, what a cool idea! Thank you Mischelle and TAC! I had such fun time making these cutie cards :) 

As I began working on these cards I found myself so inspired! So renewed and recharged (...wishing I could have more hours in my day so I can keep on going!)

For these cards I used my favorite stamp set: "Cupcake Cuties"  (R-2050) and the "More Mimi" paper collection (V-855) as my starting point. I selected cardstock papers and Copic markers that match the patterned paper. Pinks, Greens and Browns with hints of cream will be the color palette I will use.


I have been dying to use some Pom Pom trim for the longest this was the perfect opportunity! To bring the look together I added White Liquid Applique and Stickles glitter glue on the cupcake to add texture and dimension. I stitched the around card using my sewing machine and added a cute crochet pink flower with a button and scrapper's floss as the final touch. By way, that cute crochet flower was a gifty from my friend, Candi Dierenfield and just added the button on top (sweet, ah?) I love it!
