Mojo Cupcake Happiness

Hi friends! It's time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  Here's the card I based the sketch off of, but I went a bit easier on you and left a few layers off the sketch.  Dress it up, or dress it down, just have fun!



I had been itching to use the Cupcakes stamp set since it recently came back into stock after a long hiatus.  I was inspired by the colors in the bracelet of his month's Diva Inspirations challenge, so started with those colors in mind, stamping and embossing the cupcake and sentiment in pink.


I pulled out a tag that had soaked up some blue and green inks from a previous project, layered it under the vellum and added the stamped Cupcakes word.  Next I toook a bit of distress paper and smooshed some wild honey, spiced marmalade and worn lipstick around until I had a nice background.  Below that the turquoise layer is spritzed with dylusions spray, then dry embossed and sanded for a fun texture.  All of this is on some textured white distressed cardstock, and I finished off with a resist chipboard butterfly, sponged with distress inks and dolled up with glossy glaze and glitter.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful start to your week.
