JUGS and MFTWSC together!

Hi friends, how was your weekend? Mine was good; our youngest daughter returned homed after being gone for 8 days - she had a blast and is full of stories!

I found a little time this weekend to make a fun birthday card inspired by JUGS250 color combo (Turquoise, Green, and Lime) and MFT's Wednesday Sketch Challenge #185.

I used Verve Visual's "It's a Cupcake Kind of Day" for the image and inside sentiment, papers are from two different MME 6x6 paper pads. I paper pieced the entire cupcake adding a bit of shading and lots of dimension (you can see the dimension particularly in the side photo). The cherry was colored with Copics, added a layer of clear Wink of Stella and covered with glossy accents. A bit of sewing and some delightful enamel dots from both MME and Doodlebug finish the card off; I decorated the inside carrying over the pattern paper, image and the sentiment from the stamp set.


3 layers of dimension

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a great week!
